Building on the report by the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) on the Authentication and Authorization Survey conducted in 2016, the STM Association and NISO have been convening conversations focused on how to improve the user experience and provide a more seamless access experience to patrons, while also providing greater control and analytics over network activity. Community conversations commencing with the CNI fall meeting shared potential alternatives to IP-authentication and sought to build momentum toward testing alternatives among publisher, system vendors, and library partners. This session will include information on several emerging pilots that will explore different approaches to key aspects, such as improving the "Where Are You From (WAYF)" user experience or defining user attributes to support more granular usage reporting while still preserving user privacy. Participants in these pilots include publishers, technology providers, corporate subscribers (e.g. pharmaceutical companies) and academic institutions.
The presentation will be followed by an interactive audience discussion of the opportunity, institutional readiness, and potential next steps.
