Moving from first generation to second generation institutional repository is an opportunity for Monash University Library to integrate the institutional repository into other University workflows to improve efficiency of collecting content. This paper documents a project to integrate a system to manage the examination of Doctoral and Masters Theses with the institutional repository. The outcome automatically and seamlessly integrates the passage of a thesis manuscript from submission for examination to archiving in a repository via collaboration with other administrative units and the use of API technology.
