The educational institutions in the system of tertiary education are business organizations with an extremely complex structure. A great variety of versatile processes takes place in them like selection, educational, administrative, financial, accounting, etc. The participants in them have manifold and sometimes variable and/or elective roles like university students, academic staff members, employees, occupying administrative positions, deans, rectors, Academic Council members, etc. The use of centralized digital document repositories solves various document flow-related problems, expedites business processes and reduces the possibility of making mistakes. This paper presents different challenges of creating university documents repositories. It also describes a system of objects, interconnections and principles that offers a possible solution.
