Abstract: Universities play the prime role in Research and Development (R&D) of any country. The teachers of the university thus bear the responsibility to generate more and more knowledge resources to keep the nation in the forefront. Institutional Repositories (IRs) are thus being created to keep and store the intellectual assets of any university or a particular organization. It keeps the materials in central place so that anyone from anywhere can access and use these resources. But little interest among the teachers has greatly affected the main goal of IR success. The present paper deals with the results of a survey conducted among the teachers of Assam University which represents their awareness about IRs. The present paper also highlights the issues related to university based repository. The results showed that though the university has implemented a functional IR but there are still some hesitations among teachers regarding IR participation and use. The researchers thus suggested for organizing more and more awareness programmes on IR and its advantages so that more teachers get familiar and get comfortable to use it.
