Accelerated Internet development and expansion contributed to the growing number of regulations published in an electronic form. Due to that fact, one of the latest research objectives is development of new programs for searching through such documentation and development of digital collections. Croatian Information Documentation Referral Agency (in further text: HIDRA) systematically and regularly gathers publicly available official documentation in print and electronic form, and its goal is to gather documentation to enable simple user access to information from a single point. On HIDRA’s web site there are fully available legal documents of the Republic of Croatia with all changes and amendments, bylaws and other data and relations accessible through hyperlinks, relevant to a regulation in question. Thanks to electronic documents and good information-documentation practice, complete Croatian legislation, including that enacted prior to 1990, is for the first time available on-line in a unique way. This Paper will show how a simple access to a complex content (such as legislation) is developed, and which knowledge, technologies and institutions must be included in its realization.
