The Feasibility of Moving to Federated Authentication-Only: An Elsevier-Library Partnership

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Federated access to library resources is not a new thing; in fact, it’s been around for about 15 years. But it has primarily been looked at as a backup to IP access and never something that could potentially replace IP as a primary access method or as the only access method. The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged this historical view with the inaccessibility of IP access on so many campuses. A partnership with more than 15 libraries around the world, including a U.S. consortium, is helping Elsevier test the feasibility of federated authentication as the sole method of access to library resources. The study involved examining and making improvements to six areas: user experience, administration and management of access, customer support, granular (e.g. departmental level) usage reporting, security and privacy. Join two of the library partners as well as a member of the Elsevier project team to discuss why and how the libraries began working towards a move to federated authentication-only.

I have been at Elsevier for close to 19yrs. I worked in sales much of that time selling most of Elsevier's products. Since last year, I have been working on a project investigating the feasibility of federated access as a primary access method to library e-resources.
