This paper presents a module for import of theses and dissertations to CRISs. The main feature of the module is support for various formats of metadata of theses and dissertations. The model is extensible with plugins that provide support for import of other scientific-research results (papers published in journals, papers published in conferences’ proceedings, monographs, etc.) in various metadata formats (Dublin Core, ETD-MS, CERIF, etc.). The module imports data through a user interactive process by which consolidation of data is achieved.
OpenDLT is open source digital library of master theses and PhD dissertations. It has been developing since 2010 at University of Novi Sad, Serbia as a web application using Java platform and set of open-source libraries written in Java.
