Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are a helpful tool for academic research, and their use continues to grow. DOIs assist in citing and identifying research data, as well as in combating link rot. As a producer of large amounts of astronomical data, ESO has become interested in creating DOIs for its datasets. However, there are significant considerations to be undertaken in reaching this goal, and some local infrastructure is required. The ESO Library has planned, designed, and implemented a local solution for creating DOIs, consisting of an application, the ESO DOI Service, which other departments can use. This paper discusses the requirements, development process, and features of the ESO DOI Service.
