Brazil has a long tradition of creating interoperable networks of open access digital resources. In 2002 the Brazilian Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (BDTD) was created, which used a standard for the description of documents based on a specific Interoperability Metadata Standard for Electronic Theses and Dissertations, the ETD-MS. In the second half of the 2000s, the Brazilian Portal for Scientific Publications and Data (OasisBr) was also created, which was organized around the OAI-DC standard for metadata description. Finally, from 2018 onwards, OasisBr starts to aggregate research data in addition to textual scientific objects. To describe this type of resource, the DataCite standard was used as a basis. Even more, another extension of OasisBr is underway, with the construction of a Current Research Information System nationwide, called BrCris. The latter is based on the VIVO Ontology for the description of entities and relationships. The intended audience of this presentation is the data analysts, the librarians and the open digital repositories stakeholders.
