In academic environment there is an important stock of not easily accessible university publications available and produced for many years. Digital library of university publications together with a good technical infrastructure can significantly empower the education and research in a global frame. Effective cooperation of authors, university management and university library is a basic assumption for a success of digital library project of university internal production. In this paper we provide the short overview of the legislation frame and current situation in digital library initiative and registration of intellectual output of university community in Slovakia. We also describe the development and the implementation of the open digital library system designed and built to submit, store, search over and disseminate the academic publications and provide other relevant services to university staff and management. The idea is to create the open digital library system that addresses the specific needs of the internal university environment as well as allow other researchers with no prior knowledge of the repository existence to locate materials of their research interests.
