This study investigates the development of institutional repository at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (HIOA) with the purpose of to identify the types and formats of learning and teaching materials produced by faculty members and extend specific metadata elements according to educational objectives. Metadata is a core issue for the managing of institutional repositories successfully. Different institutional repositories have selected and applied different metadata models and elements for describing preserved digital documents. Thus, this paper is aims to adopt an appropriate metadata scheme to the relevant digital documents contributed by the HIOA community. This study adopts a qualitative method based upon conducted face-to-face interview and online questionnaire which is used for data collection.
