Digital Libraries: Authentication, Access & Security for Information Resources

The Grand, 225 N Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21201

May 22-23, 2018


Hear from these stakeholders:


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 principles and goals, such as privacy, interoperability and unencumbered access.
