Document Provider

Last Updated: Sep 05, 2017 01:34PM EDT


Document Provider is currently in Beta Testing

Document Provider allows for submission of a Public Document or Open Access Title to desLibris by an Agency.

If you wish to participate in the Document Provider Beta please contact and let them know that you would like to participate in the Beta

General Instructions

The Document Provider account allows desLibris Library subscribers to load new titles for inclusion on the platform. In summary, the account allows for easy upload of metadata and PDFs by authorized users. But final editing and approval of titles for inclusion are done by desLibris editors, so submission of a new title does not guarantee that it will appear in the desLibris service.

To submit a document to CEL with a Document Provider or Private Hosting account, you must provide

  • An original source file, which is a PDF or a url/link to a PDF that may be retrieved online
  • Basic metadata

When a submission has been made, your document will appear on the “Manage Content” page until it has been processed by a CEL Team member.
