Digital publishing, global networking, more research, and increased communication among communities of scholars are driving the demand for broader access. The paper explores the essence of developing Institutional Repositories as a hidden treasure to the academic and research community providing its conceptual development. Further, mentions the issues to be considered before developing institutional repository in the form policy documentation on the part of the institution. The initiatives undertaken by the Academic and Research Libraries in India towards building Institutional Repositories have also been highlighted.
