Fix errors in ProQuest XML

Description

ProQuest reported three problems with some XML files we send them:

1. Some files do not have values in the home country field (DISS_country). It seems that the values that are supplied by the students are inconsistent and non-standard, so matching them to values in the country table and pulling the appropriate ProQuest country code does not happen correctly.

2. Some files for doctoral degrees have "masters" in the degree type (DISS_description type=). This has been fixed by using the full correct list of degree types from the RUetd db when setting type= in the XML.

3. The files for students with the Psy.D. degree did not have the final period after D (DISS_degree). This has been fixed by correcting the degree type table in the RUetd db.

1) For now if a match is not found a default value of 'US' is returned.

2) Mapped these degrees to type="doctoral when exporting to ProQuest.
