We have many thousands of paper theses and dissertations in storage. Some of them also exist on microfilm. Extensive circulation data show that these works aren’t being used very much. Not only is it hard and expensive to keep all these books for decades (and occasionally lose one or more to mold), they’re also difficult for researchers to obtain.
