A DOI is a digital object identifier. DOI's are unique strings assigned to digital materials, such as datasets or electronic journal articles. DOI's help maintain and keep track of these materials. 

The library does not provide or mediate access to DOI registration agencies or data repositories. We recommend consulting this list to determine which service is best for you. One of the most commonly used registration agencies is CrossRef.
