I am in the process of researching authentication methods for our students and faculty who use our databases and ejournals on and off campus. We currently have a library consortium managed EZ Proxy but our director would like to switch to something in-house that we could manage. We fear that the EZ proxy is often serving as a barrier to the information resources we strive to make accessible to our community. Has anyone made the transition from EZ Proxy to Shibboleth/Open Athens/SAML? I would love to hear more about the process and the details- what are the new products we need to buy? Do you have preferred vendors for these new products? Did you have to work with your IT department or is it something you did yourself? Any and all comments are welcome.

Thanks in Advance!
