Design/methodology/approach - Various systems that contain metadata about theses and dissertations are analyzed. There are different standards and protocols which enable interoperability of those systems: CERIF standard, AOI-PMH protocol, etc. A physical data model which enables interoperability with almost all of those systems is created using the PowerDesigner CASE tool. Findings - A set of metadata about theses and dissertations that contain all the metadata required by CERIF data model, Dublin Core format, EDT-MS format and all the metadata prescribed by the University of Novi Sad is defined. Defined metadata can be stored in the CERIF compatible data model based on the MARC21 format. Practical implications - CRIS UNS is a CRIS which has been being developed at the University of Novi Sad since 2008. The system is based on the proposed data model which enables the system interoperability with other CERIF compatible CRIS systems. Also, the system based on the proposed model can become a member of NDLTD.”
