This paper discusses the extension of the Current Research Information System (CRIS) at the University of Novi Sad, Republic of Serbia, to incorporate electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). Data describing ETDs is entered using a web application that enables researchers to input their own data through a webpage without knowing the standards on which the system is based. The ETDs repository can exchange data with CRIS institutional repositories and Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations members. In this way, the international visibility of theses and dissertations created at the University of Novi Sad is enhanced without duplicating data entry in various systems. This approach has been verified and tested on a dataset of theses and dissertations at the University of Novi Sad.
