Senada Dizdar, Lejla Hajdarpašić

The usage of the information and communication technologies (ICT) in an everyday life, including the field of education, brought the need for both thorough and lifelong educational reorganization. It became clear that a standard educational environment, standard library and standard technological resources can not address at the best the new requirements that are being put upon by the need for a new education. In order to implement the education that is being requested by the knowledge society, a new environment is needed, the one with the foundations in the usage of modern ICT, respectively establishing the electronic learning (e-learning) environment that implements learning objects as its foundation entities. As an important place for storing the learning objects, digital repositories are emerging, such as BISER (Bibliotečki Sarajevski Elektronski Repozitorij), which is being used at the Faculty of Philosophy in Sarajevo, at the Department for Comparative Literature and Librarianship. This papers’' goal is to introduce the creation and the usage of BISER, as a mechanism that enables a systematic handling of publishing processes, accessing processes and processes of storing the teaching/educational content.
