Description Masaryk University (MU) has developed an institutional repository with plagiarism detection service as an extension of the university information system (IS). The repository enables various options of storing research and eventually publishes it in accordance with copyrights. Setting the access mode is managed by approval process support in the repository. Therefore, the university had to set the rules and processes for proposing and approving the access modes in order to be able to set the proper access rights. The article advocates the hypothesis that the implementation of the university repository must focus not only on technical tasks, but also on methodological tasks. The paper describes both tasks and also the benefits of institutional repository driven by access rights deployment, where some files can be hidden for common users. Our approach is based on the idea that even the inaccessible files are usable in limited access mode and valuable sources for plagiarism detection tools and related services.
