For many years, IP authentication has been the de facto standard for electronic resource access. At Dahlgren Memorial Library, the graduate health and life sciences research library at Georgetown University Medical Center, we made a decision to transition resources away from IP authenticated access to username/password based access tied to a patron’s network identity. We envisioned a number of potential benefits to this move - additional financial stewardship, more secure identity management, granular usage and collection management data and additional branding opportunities. The pilot project for a username based authentication has been possible due to the library’s implementation of the OpenAthens authentication system from Eduserv. This poster will discuss the transition, including the rationale behind the move , the implementation process and the results one year into the pilot.
