Abstract: Addis Ababa University (AAU) is the oldest and largest University in Ethiopia with more than 50,000 students (both graduate and undergraduate). The University is currently engaged in an ambitious plan of expanding graduate programs at Masters and PhD levels in different disciplines. The University has started a pilot African ETD program in collaboration with the University of Witwatersrand. As part of this program, AAU runs a training workshop for librarians and researchers coming from all higher learning institutions in Ethiopia. Following the workshop, Addis Ababa University has implemented Dspace and currently populating full-text thesis and dissertation (around 3000 full-text thesis and dissertation has already been entered into the database). A server and scanner have also been secured through donation for the National ETD Repository, which is initiated by Addis Ababa University. This paper will cover the current status, opportunities, challenges, and future direction of Etds in Ethiopia.
