Practical guidance to ensuring that your users can access and personalise the online resources they are entitled to use with the minimum of fuss.
With the rapid increase in the use of electronic resources in libraries, managing access to online information is an area many librarians struggle with. Managers of online information wish to implement policies about who can access the information and under what terms and conditions but often they need further guidance. 
Written by experts in the field, this practical book is the first to explain the principles behind access management, the available technologies and how they work. This includes an overview of federated access management technologies, such as Shibboleth, that have gained increasing international recognition in recent years. This book provides detailed case studies describing how access management is being implemented at organizational and national levels in the UK, USA and Europe, and gives a practical guide to the resources available to help plan, implement and operate access management in libraries. 
Key topics include:

  • what is access management and why do libraries do it?
  • electronic resources: public and not so public
  • principles and definitions of identity and access management
  • current access management technologies
  • authentication technologies
  • authorization based on physical location
  • authorization based on user identity or affiliation
  • federated access: history, current position and future developments
  • internet access provided by (or in) libraries
  • library statistics
  • the business case for libraries.

About the Author:

Simon McLeish is Resource Discovery Architect at the Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford, UK, and previously worked at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and as an independent IT professional, specializing in Identity and Access Management. John Paschoud has been an IT professional since 1972. As Projects Manager at the LSE Library he led a series of projects which identified and established the technologies for federated access that are now most widely used by academic libraries. As a consulting information systems engineer he now specializes mainly in government and education fields, and is a member of the Technical Advisory Group to the UK Access Management Federation for Education and Research.

Review:

"...provides an excellent, well-organized overview of the structures, protocols, and skills necessary for controlling online access to proprietary information resources. The book, including introduction, glossary, appendices, and index, is just slightly over 250 pages long and presents the topic in a logical manner with an appropriate level of detail and useful, real-world examples." -- Journal of Access Services "The combination of theoretical explanation and analysis, real-world case studies, and historical background in the form of the Lynch paper lends variety and interest to a fairly dry topic. Chapters are concise and to the point, and a glossary of terms proves helpful in navigating the myriad acronyms involved. Of some surprise is a lack of discussion of LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol), which is mentioned only in passing. On the whole, however, the book is exhaustive in its treatment of the subject, and it is recommended for readers who wish to better understand access and identity management and implement associated technologies in their libraries." --Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship
