Concerning with the access to scientific information drives actions by information and communication technologies. The repositories, which gather all the scientific production of an institution, have to be aligned to the principles established by the Information Architecture as a way to be more efficient and effective. This study presents the analysis of the institutional repository of the Federal University of Brasília in order to verify if it uses the principles proposed by Morville and Rosenfeld. This repository presents compatibility with some principles; however, it needs to solve problems regarding the system of search, accessibility, and service to the users’ demands.
