  • Slide 12
  • Problems, solutions & challenges: General: a national project is a real challenge in a country that has sharp differences in human development (as defined by the UNDP) The solution to this problem is a not in the scope of the BDTD project
  • Slide 13
  • Problems, solutions & challenges: Change of culture in some institutions: Some institutions did not believe that ETDs are important Others thought they were for developed countries Solution: intensive training program that started in 2001 co-sponsored by IBICT, UNESCO and universities
  • Slide 14
  • Problems, solutions & challenges: Existence of MARC records (for traditional T&Ds) and metadata records (for ETDs) 1 st solution: use one database for both did not work due to the difference in contents of the records 2 nd solution: keep to separate databases and allow federated search
  • Slide 15
  • Problems, solutions & challenges: Quality of metadata records when originated in OPACS no titles, keywords and abstracts in foreign languages; no uniform assignment of fields to T&Ds specific info Solution: technical support is given to institutions that want to implement MTD-Br in addition to traditional MARC records; institutions that do comply to MTD-Br will not participate in the project
  • Slide 16
  • Problems, solutions & challenges: Some OPACs (local products) do not have OAI-PMH dataprovider functions Solution: technical support is given to institutions that want to implement TEDE /TEDE #2 in addition to their OPACs
  • Slide 17
  • Problems, solutions & challenges: Lack of motivation to keep the ETD projects running after a few months Solution: work with the highest institutional level possible to assure that the ETD project is institutional
  • Slide 18
  • Problems, solutions & challenges: Lack of motivation of faculty to e-publishing of documents Solution: offer access statistics to show how visible works are this has been very successful in PUC-Rio Solution # 2 (after Steves presentation early in the morning) : refer to citations (will be addressed when I get back to Brazil)
  • Slide 19
  • Problems, solutions & challenges: Institutions that do not require ETDs Solution: work with funding agencies to modify contracts to require ETDs as a condition to give scholarships
