The advent of the Internet and the mushrooming of information in various digital formats have resulted in looking at the library and its services with newer perspectives for conserving and disseminating scholarly publications. This paper discusses two mechanisms of digitization initiated at Raman Research Institute (RRI) in India, namely 1) the Digital Repository of RRI and 2) the Imprints Collection. The digital repository of RRI is the institutional repository built in 2006 to bring visibility to the scholarly publications of its founder Sir C V Raman. This paper discusses a decade long experience in building and sustaining an institutional repository. A value addition to this repository is the “Imprints Collection”- a bio-bibliographic database of retired scientists of RRI. The design and functionality of the Imprints Collection are also discussed in this paper.
