The growth and development of institutional repositories (IRs) in Indonesia within the broader framework of open access has significant impact on preserving intellectual capital and scholarly communication. Institutional Repositories play a fundamental role in centralizing, preserving, and making accessible institution’s intellectual capital and, at the same time, they form part of a global system of distributed and interoperable repositories that provide the foundation for a new disaggregated model of scholarly publishing (Johnson, 2002; Negahban, 2010). State Islamic universities as part of the higher education which is under the coordination of Direktorat Pendidikan Tinggi Agama Islam – Kementrian Agama (The Directorate of Islamic Higher Education - Indonesian Ministry of Religious Affairs) has an important role for developing IRs in Indonesia. According to the Directory of Open Access Repositories (DOAR) there are 36 Indonesia’s IRs registered, and for the Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR) 70 IRs were registered. Nevertheless, only 7 state Islamic higher educations in Indonesia has been registered on DOAR and ROAR. Study using qualitative approaches as a method of data collection to examine the design and development of IRs of State Islamic Higher Education as an effort to enhance open access to university intellectual capital and scholarly communication were done.This study concluded that IRs not only give benefit to students and institutions by enhancing education and research, but also increases the visibility of universities and contributes to the impact and ranking of the parent institutions. Keywords : Digital Libraries, Institutional Repositories, Intellectual Capital, Scholarly Communication
