Abstract: Registries are an integral part of the VO infrastructure, yet the greatest exposure that most users will ever need to have to one is discovering resources through a registry portal. Some users, however, will have resources of their own that they need to register and will go to an existing registry to do so, but a small number will want to set up their own registry. They may have too many resources to register with an existing registry; they may want more control over their resource metadata than an existing registry will afford; or they may want to set up a specialized registry, e.g. a subjectspecific one. CARNIVORE is designed to offer those who want their own registry the functionality they require in an off-the-shelf implementation. This chapter describes how to set up your own registry using CARNIVORE.
