Digital repository gathers and permanently stores results of scientific, intellectual and creative output of a certain institution (institutional repository) or materials in the same scientific field (thematic repository) thus documenting the institution's total intelectual property.
Digital repository increases visibility, frequency of citation and transparency of the institution. Furthermore, it accelerates information sharing in the scientific and academic community. Materials stored in a digital repository are permanently protected from loss.
This digital repository has been created within the Digital Academic Archives and Repositories (DABAR) system. DABAR enables scientific institutions and institutions of higher education to permanently store their digital materials in one place, while the technological issues related to establishing and maintaining the repository are Srce's responsibility. All materials stored in a digital repository can be easily organized, searched and browsed. Objects that can be stored in DABAR include M.A. theses, dissertations, pre-print papers, peer-reviewed articles, conference papers, research data, books, teaching materials, images, video and audio files, and presentations. To improve searchability, all materials have to be described with predetermined set of metadata.
Administered by the Hospital's Library, the Merkur University Hospital Repository contains materials selected and deposited by the individual authors independently, with these entires being validated and incomplete metadata records updated by the repository administrator as appropriate.
