Help Us to Solve One of the Biggest User Headaches! 

Digital Libraries: Authentication, Access & Security for Information Resources

A NISO Live Connections Event, May 22-23, 2018


Authentication and access control is a critical aspect of the existing infrastructure that provides library subscribers and their patrons with the digital materials delivered by the publishing community.  Currently, users face a complex and frequently confusing authentication processes when attempting to log into library resources, particularly when users are working outside of a library or institutional network. A number of work-around solutions have been implemented to address issues caused by IP-authentication, such as proxy servers, but each work-around presents its own set of issues and concerns.


This event is intended to bring together the information community to discuss the means by which the community may be able to simplify the user experience while still preserving necessary privacy and security protections for all stakeholders. The problem requires a face-to-face collaborative approach between librarians, content providers and service providers.


Attend this NISO Connections Live event and be an active participant in ensuring that any recommended set of solutions are based upon library principles and goals, such as privacy, interoperability and unencumbered access.
