I think we need to clear (and careful) in this discussion about what user
data we are discussing. With authentication being done by the library /
university, Lean Library doesn’t actually have personally identifiable
information (PII). While IP addresses can be traced, is that any more a
concern than an user’s ISP tracking all of users traffic already, since
Lean Library is only effective from off campus IP addresses?
On EZProxy, we do use a wildcard certificate, and we are in the process of
moving the IP address of the service to a private IP address.
Similar to a previous comment, this service will be an individual choice of
a user to make. We can’t push this to our users; it will take their own
initiative to install.
Another context that I haven’t seen yet: what do others think of the cost?
Have you found it to be reasonable or high? We are still considering that
One more context is the licensing. The base license language has the
jurisdiction in The Netherlands, which is something we (Duke) could never
accept. We are suggesting other language changes, too, so I don’t know
where all of this will land. It is possible we won’t come to a mutual
agreement on contract terms.
