In the last 20 years scientific daily practice has changed significantly due to the development of information and communication technology and especially digital technologies which changed ways in which scientists conduct scientific research, collect and analyse data and communicate with their colleagues. The results of these changes can be seen publishing and storing of scientific works in digital format as well as storing of data of scientific research. Both works and data are stored for re-use. The possibilities of digital technology are not fully used especially in area of creating information resources as a support to sciences. In Croatia, there only few digital repositories of scientific information while the number of scientific works and scientific data is on the rise. The first step in making some improvements in support to science is to establish the current conditions of digital information resources development. The focus in this paper is on the current state of development of digital repositories in libraries at the University of Zagreb and problems which they encounter in operation of the existing digital repositories and in planning of future digital repositories.
