Shibboleth: Improving Access for Library Users
Time 10/14/08 03:00PM-04:00PM
Access to library online resources and services has skyrocketed as opportunities for distance learning and the user expectations for availability of online information have increased. Providing access to these resources requires substantial time and resources by libraries, as well as often being complex for the users. The InCommon Library/Shibboleth project was started in 2007 to explore the issues in implementing access to library services and electronic resources using Shibboleth authentication. This session will highlight the work done by the project since its inception.
