New Factsheet on Federated Access to Digital Resources at Libraries/Federal Identity Management
The factsheet was prepared by LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries).
From the Introduction
A factsheet on Federated Access to Digital Resources at Libraries has been developed by the LIBER Office, as a result of our work for the AARC Project.
It provides a basic explanation of federated identity management, the benefits for libraries and end-users, as well as recommendations for action and links for further reading. The conclusions of the interviews with decision-makers from several LIBER Member institutions that were carried out during December 2015 contributed to this work, as they allowed to identify several main issues related to federated access at libraries’ settings.
