I think an institutional repository is a type of digital library.
In general, an institutional repository is characterized as content
written/created by members of the hosting organization. This is
contrasted with collections of digital content -- a digital library --
that might have a similar format, theme, or some other facet that is
not specifically identified with the institution.
But I must admit, the genre is not definitive.
