In this paper we present the process of development of Bulgarian Open Science Digital Library (BOSDL) as the first and main ingredient of Bulgarian Open Science Cloud (BOSC). We introduce and discuss main principles involved in the Open Science movement. We also give a lot of technical details related to BOSDL development.
