 +====== How to deal with dissertation titles that are missing from ScholarWorks ======
 +
 +**Background on the process:**
 +
 +All dissertations are submitted through Proquest. ​ They are then added to ScholarWorks@ UMass Amherst via a feed that gets delivered to Bepress Digital Commons (the system that runs ScholarWorks) on the 15th of each month. ​ The feed contains links to all of our dissertations (both Open Access and Campus Access) in the Proquest Dissertations and Theses database.  ​
 +
 +Open access dissertation files are also separately delivered to UMass Amherst Library servers by Proquest. ​ ScholarWorks student workers then upload the Open Access dissertation files to the Open Access Dissertations series on ScholarWorks.
 +
 +
 +
 +===== If the title is at least a full year old and is still missing: =====
 +
 +==== Missing Campus Access dissertations ====
 +
 +
 +First search the [[http://​www.library.umass.edu/​cgi-bin/​aka/​ndluse.cgi?​uuid=c06ea614-d2eb-102a-9080-001143eb18be|Proquest Dissertations and Theses]] database for the title to see if it is available there.
 +
 +=== If the title is NOT listed on Proquest: ​ ===
 +
 +
 +
 +  * First check with the Grad School to see if there'​s any reason why it might be missing from Proquest.
 +  * If the Grad School doesn'​t have any reason for why it could be missing from Proquest, contact ProQuest Dissertation Publishing Support at [[disspub@proquest.com]] and ask them to look into it.
 +
 +=== If the title IS listed on Proquest: ===
 +
 +
 +  * Check to see if there are any restrictions on the title.  ​
 +  * If there ARE restrictions,​ it will not show up on ScholarWorks if or until the restriction is lifted.
 +  * There'​s no need to check back, because the ScholarWorks system will send an email notification when it becomes available.
 +  * If there are NO restrictions on the title, email the Bepress Support Department at [[support@dc.bepress.com]] and ask them to look into why it isn't listed on ScholarWorks@UMass Amherst.
