Animo Repository Training for Students

With the launch of the DLSU's institutional repository, students are now required to submit their electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) in the Animo Repository (AR) as one of the requirements for passing final thesis writing. The AR serves as a digital repository of scholarly and creative works of the faculty, students, and researchers of the De La Salle University (DLSU). It also hosts digital archival contents, including university events and photo diaries. 

To better assist and support students transition to this new process, the Libraries conducted training six sessions from March 24-26, 2021. Schedules were as follows: 

The demonstration focused on teaching students how to submit the final version of their ETDs in the AR. In the Animo Repository Guidelines, submission must contain the following documents: 
  • Scanned signed approval sheet of department 
  • Scanned signed submission agreement form 
  • Final thesis document (in PDF format) 
  • Additional files (when applicable)
Aside from walking the students through the ETD submission process, they were also taught how to search and locate for ETDs, faculty publications, and archival documents within the AR and other repositories of Digital Commons Network. 

Around 360 students signed up and participated in the online training sessions.
