DataONE provides services and tools for many data repositories, called member-nodes.

As a DataONE user, to search/query the combined holdings of DataONE member nodes, you can use your own identity from your home institution. DataONE uses a federated identity system (via InCommon and CILogin) to map your identity to its holdings.

To create an identity as part of the DataONE collaboration team, use the register link in the upper right hand corner of https://docs.dataone.org/.

The process of becoming a DataONE Member Node is answered in a separate question in this Knowledge base or http://www.dataone.org/become-member-node
