Setting up your EHESS account

If you do not have an EHESS account, please see the CLA website for more information about signing up, please see here.

Once you are setup with your EHESS account please contact to integrate you account with the DCS.

We will require

  • Your EHESS account number (which takes the form XX-XXX where X is always numeric). This may also be referred to as the Customer Key.
  • Your EHESS API password
  • Whether you are a pay monthly, or pay in advanced customer 

If you are struggling to find the above information, please request this from:

Once CLA has notified you that the account has been set up please go to the following webpage:

Log on using the username and password created for your British Library On Demand online account. The credentials used must be either for an Account Manager or Administrator.

All you have to do now is click on the created button.


The status should then change to confirmed. You can now make EHESS orders through the DCS.


Once you are setup on the system you can order EHESS copies in the DCS. Please see our detailed instruction guide on using EHESS in the DCS here.
