Abstract

The unique source of information for any type of research work is available in the form of theses and dissertations. Theses and dissertations are major source of information in the University libraries. Shodhganga is a repository of Indian electronic theses and dissertations set up by INFLIBNET Centre. In this paper, an attempt is made to know the total number of theses contributed by Universities from Karnataka State to the Shodhganga repository. There are 53 Universities in Karnataka out of them only 20 Universities have signed MoU and submitted electronic theses and dissertations in Shodhganga. The present study found that a total number of theses contributed by Universities in Karnataka are 10868 in Shodhganga. Even though UGC makes it mandatory to submit PhD theses of researchers in Shodhganga, there is need to have more focus by UGC & INFLIBNET to ensure/facilitate regular submission of the ETDs by the Universities who have not yet started to contribute theses in Shodganga.
