Experience of the University Library Svetozar Marković
in Establishing the Digital Repository of the University in Belgrade – PHAIDRA


Summary

The first multidisciplinary institutional repository in the Republic of Serbia was established at the University of Belgrade in 2011. Support and control of its functioning were entrusted to the University Library Svetozar Marković, a coordinator of the Tempus Project New Library Services at the Western Balkan Universities, within which, besides this one, five more repositories in the region were established. The program support of all the repositories is PHAIDRA, the system created at the University of Vienna based on the Fedora open source software. This paper offers a review of the system functionality and the ways of its usage at the universities. Currently, the universities and their central and branch libraries are in charge for the content of the repository, while self-archiving is much less present. The largest part of the content includes doctoral dissertations, through the Etheses submission system, as well as master theses which are being archived at some faculty libraries. Besides continuous technical upgrade and improvement, the complete system development requires its acceptance by professors and associates of the university, to whom it is primarily intended as a tool in the educational process and research.
