Digital Libraries: Authentication, Access & Security for Information Resources

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

May 22-23, 2018


Engage with these expert voices:


The objective is to engage workshop participants in a full-throated discussion of how best to resolve the friction experienced by users in attempting to access key resources from any location, from any device. There are many facets to the issues of authenticating users. How much information about the user is required? How can the speedbumps be minimized? Users face a complex and frequently confusing authentication process, particularly when users are working outside of a library or institutional network. From the standpoint of institutional infrastructure, 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 to address every group's concerns. What does campus IT think about the issues? Do their concerns differ dramatically from those working with patrons in the library? How should providers of information resources be approaching issues of access? The complexity of satisfying the needs of all constituencies deserves an intensive face-to-face discussion and your voice is needed.
