If you have any questions about how to register to participate please contact the Ohio EAD Task Force.
At present, 72 institutions in Ohio are registered participants in the EAD FACTORy. These include public, school, and academic libraries, historical societies, museums, and special libraries.
Before your institution may use the EAD Application (encoding tool) and submit finding aids to the OhioLINK Repository, you must register as a contributor.*
• Contributor Registration Form
*Please note: Each contributing institution must specify an administrator/contact person who will then request and manage individual user accounts for his or her institution.
Registration also requires an Library of Congress MARC Institution Code. Many institutions already have this code. To check to see if your institution has a code, please see the MARC Codes database. If your institution does not have a code you may request a code be created.
