Innovation Track: the ABES STAR system

Marianne Giloux and Isabelle Mauger Perez from the Agence Bibliographique de l'Enseignement Supérieur (ABES), France presented the plan for the implementation of STAR, which includes:
  • saving and recording the Theses
  • gathering and extracting metadata used for description, indexation, long term preservation and dissemination
  • transfering the theses to a national system of preservation
  • allocating a permanent identifier ( URL)
Data and metadata are ingested in STAR either on-line, through Web forms, or by importation of normalized files extracted from various locals systems, or with a mixed method.
