ProQuest: Migran colección de Tesis y Disertaciones

Les informamos que el pasado 15 de Julio se terminó la fase principal en la migración de la base de datos de Disertaciones de ProQuest, siendo renombrada de “Proquest Digital Dissertations” (PQDD) a ser ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Database (PQDT).

Entre otros cambios nos informan lo siguiente:

  • Support for Subject Subsets: Not only will customers with one of the larger subject subsets be able to move to PQDT, but other customers who want to subscribe to smaller, full text subsets — like Medicine or Agriculture — will be able to do so as well.
  • Support for Open Access Dissertations and Theses: Beginning in the fall of 2006, graduate authors who publish with ProQuest/UMI will have the option of publishing their work on an open access basis under our Expanded Publishing with Open Access (EPOA) service. As they become available, those EPOA titles will be added to the database for free full-text download for all PQDT users.
  • Search Enhancements: Enhancements include the ability to limit by material type (dissertations or theses) and improvements to searching by university name.
  • Using the Local Administrator utility (LAD), libraries will be able to customize the “Order a Copy” link to provide any special instructions required to match their institutions’ policies.
  • Después de esta migración durante el 2006 y más delante se piensan mejorar aspectos como:

  • Release of “Dissertations & Theses @” - Currently known as “Current Research @”, this feature will allow universities that publish dissertations and theses through ProQuest/UMI to view all of their own university’s titles free of charge on the ProQuest platform. Titles from the university already in PQDT in full-text PDF will be available as free downloads. Qualifying universities will not need a PQDT subscription to access their titles via Dissertations & Theses@”.
  • Full-text searching and highlighting of search terms for newly published titles.
  • Ability to send PDFs as email attachments - just select the full-text dissertations and theses you want from your results list or from your marked list. This feature will provide an alternative to immediate downloading of the title to your computer.
  • OpenURL support allowing both ProQuest subscribers and non-ProQuest subscribers to link to the individual citation/abstract of a particular title.
  • Improved shopping experience for hardcopy, digital, or microfilm titles, including the ability to order multiple copies on a single order.

      ¿No deberían actualizar esta versión de Wordpress (el CMS que utiliza este blog)? La versión que usan tiene varias fallas que ya se corrigieron en la versión 2.0.4.
