Abstract: This paper relates and analyzes the experience of various Brazilian institutions organized in a consortium with the aim of providing integration and unified access, via a web gateway, to the full-text electronic theses and dissertations already available in different Brazilian universities. The increase and impact of academic free electronic publishing to scientific communication and to the development of science is discussed. The results of a pilot experience, developed under the coordination of IBICT as well as technical and technological aspects of the information system model adopted, are presented. Aspects such as metadata element set and format, protocols for automatic gathering of metadata, union catalog database, user interface and integration with other Brazilian STI systems are analyzed. As a conclusion, future developments and enlargement of the Brazilian Electronic Theses Consortia experience are discussed.
