Project Suggestion: ETDs and ResearchIndex
Title: ResearchIndex adapted for ETDs
- Number of people: 2-3
- Goal: To get ResearchIndex running at Virginia Tech, to have
our ETD collection processed with it, and to document its use in NDLTD
- Contact information: Steve Lawrence,
Research Scientist, Computer Science,
NEC Research Institute, 4 Independence Way, Princeton NJ 08540,
phone 609 951 2676,

- Required background: interest in citation and article processing
ResearchIndex (formerly CiteSeer)
which is described in various articles including Digital Libraries and Autonomous Citation Indexing, is
available free for
use at Virginia Tech. Dr. Lawrence would like to help
us apply it on campus, such as with electronic theses and dissertations.
It will allow building of a citation database, plagiarism
detection, and other activities in addition to search.
This could be of great benefit to Virginia Tech.
