NDLTD is an international organisation that promotes the adoption, creation, use, dissemination and preservation of electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). Its annual event attracts 200-plus delegates from across the globe, including representatives from higher education institutions, and partner organisations including Adobe.

The bid for ETD 2014 was submitted collaboratively by Leicester Conferences at the University of Leicester as the host venue, as well as Leicester Shire Promotions, the official tourism partner for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Louise Jones, director of library services at University of Leicester, said: "Bringing ETD 2014 to Leicester is very significant to us in terms raising the profile of the work on ETDs at the University. The annual symposium brings experts in the field together to share best practice...

"The Leicester Conferences team has been invaluable with their assistance and contribution on this event and I have been very pleased with their quick response time in dealing with any issues.

"Leicester Shire Promotions was also great to deal with and very useful with their input on places to visit during the event as well as additional information if delegates choose to stay on and explore the East Midlands."
