How do I add a user to our Digital Collection Gateway?

Applies to
  • Digital Collection Gateway

You can register a user by clicking the Register link from the DCG login page. You may also register your institution here. The Digital Collection Gateway uses OCLC LDAP authentication.

If you have a user name and password already registered with OCLC LDAP (either for CONTENTdm or Digital Collection Gateway), please enter all fields and confirm the e-mail address and password associated with your existing LDAP account.

If you're creating a new user name and password, you will also need to fill in all fields, but select a password that is at least 3 characters in length. The password can include letters or numbers and must include at least one letter. The password may not contain spaces or the colon (:), semicolon (;), apostrophe (') or quotation(") characters.

You will also need to input your key so the account is added to the correct Gateway. If you do not know your key, please contact with your OCLC symbol.
