This paper will focus on implementation of digital repository at the Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI). Based on the RBI needs and considering consolidation of IT services, it was decided that RBI digital repository will include three different types of archived content: scientific output, documentary and press clipping materials. This is the main difference against other commonly implemented institutional repositories which archive mostly only scientific articles and thesis. Choosing of appropriate software, its implementation and customization will be discussed, as well as the methodology of gathering content for the repository and the method of its archiving. Archived material will be organized in collections based on the RBI needs and divisional structure. During the process of creation of metadata schemes for different types of archived content, especially those of scientific character, special attention was paid to OAI compliance with other digital/institutional repositories, as well as with Croatian Scientific Bibliography (CROSBI). The goal is that researchers should archive scientific materials primarily in RBI digital repository, while metadata will be automatically exported to CROSBI. Successful implementation of this data-exchange mechanism could also be useful to other institutions which are considering creating their own repository.
