Abstract: This paper presents the background and process the CityU Library builds the E-theses collection in the institutional repository. Like many institutions, E-theses is not a new product in the CityU Library. Also like many institutions, the demand for a creating a new platform goes up when the limited functions and weak interface of the old system no longer meet the needs of users. Recently, the Library developed the university's IR. It is found that IR is an ideal platform for housing the E-theses collection. IR provides a centralized place for preserving and distributing the quality student works. It can expose the academic works to the Internet via OAI-PMH. The visibility gained will help the Library to obtain approval from authors to digitize and distribute their old theses. From the perspective of building IR, adding E-theses to IR gives a boost to its content and will help to promote IR to the academic communities of the university.
