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 broadest possible spectrum of
stakeholders from the information community. The objective is to engage
participants in a discussion of how best to resolve the friction
experienced by users in attempting to access key resources from any
location, from any device. To satisfy the needs of all concerned, the
problem requires an interactive, face-to-face approach.

Attend this *NISO Connections Live* event and be an active participant in
ensuring that any recommended set of solutions are based upon library
