Dartmouth Digital Commons Author Name Change Policy

Anyone with materials in Dartmouth Digital Commons may change the name displaying on the record and/or the materials themselves. While there are any number of reasons that someone may need to do this (including name changes related to gender, marriage, religion, and others), no justification is required for an author name change to be implemented. The change does not need to reflect the author’s past or current legal name(s).

To have your name changed, email the Dartmouth Digital Commons administrators () with the following information:

  1. Name(s) currently listed on your materials in Dartmouth Digital Commons
  2. Complete list of materials with the old name on them, with a link to each item
  3. The new name that you would like to be listed under

We will then change your name as requested. Note that this will affect the item record, but it will not show in the document itself. To change this, email us a new version of the document with the correct name on it. After reviewing to make sure there are no other changes to the content, we will replace the old document with the updated one. You are responsible for contacting your coauthors if you want them to know about the change.
