Over the past years, grey literature in general and electronic digital theses (EDTs) in particular have been becoming more and more digital. Algeria is ranked first among Arab countries with fifteen (15) digital repositories. EDTs represent a large percentage of the repositories' content. Fourteen (14) of these repositories have policies for the collection of theses and dissertations, as well as other types of documents such as articles and reports. The usage of ETDs by undergraduates has been increasing exponentially. This study aims to highlight and evaluate the tools used to measure the usage of ETDs in the digital repositories, their availability and the evaluation methodology.
