The campaign “Share your presentation” collects scientific presentations

The University of Tartu Library has launched a new campaign called "Share your presentation" to collect and preserve scientific conference presentations in the university's digital repository DSpace.

This is the next step in collecting and preserving academic heritage. In the first stage, we focused on collecting research posters.

If you have any presentation files on a USB stick or a hard drive, we would appreciate it if you would forward them through the online form on the library's website.

As an integral part of scientific communication, a conference presentation is undoubtedly a form of academic heritage that deserves to be preserved. By storing them in our digital archive, we can be sure that researchers, students, and all other interested people will have access to the presentations in the future.

Forwarding your presentation to the library is easy: you must fill out a short form of basic metadata on the library's website and upload the presentation file there. As with the thesis, the presentations are protected by a CC license. The author can also apply for a DOI, a permanent reference to the presentation or easy referencing.

The Estonian University of Life Sciences, Tallinn University of Technology, and Tallinn University libraries have also joined the campaign to collect as many presentations of researchers and post-graduates of the Estonian universities as possible.

We hope the new initiative will become a common practice and, in the future, all presentations will be added to the digital repository via the form on the library's website.


We also continue to collect research posters!
