Abstract: Much of the content of the University of Washington Libraries'' Information Gateway is generated from an SQL database extracted from the libraries'' OPAC. The database, known locally as the Digital Registry, drives multiple services on the Information Gateway. My Gateway is the personalized component of the Information Gateway and provides a way for users to create their own views of the Registry and to integrate their own URLs into those views. This article describes the My Gateway service, its architecture, and procedures for content selection and maintenance for the Registry database. Future development plans and lessons learned are also discussed.
