HI Melissa,

We are members of InCommon and recently went live with OpenAthens (hosted by Ebsco).  I say that because they did a lot of the work, and like you I am still learning the jargon and don't have all the details of set up.  I think the vendors need to know what federation you belong to.

ACM, IEEE, Gale, Credo, McGraw Hill, Ovid/Wolters Kluwer, Springer, R2 Digital Library, Psychiatry Online, Liebert, Oxford, Duke, Taylor and Francis, and are some of the other vendors we have set this up with.

Kind regards,

Heather Siemon

Hi, all.
I've been slowly trying to configure our vendors who support SAML/SSO/WAYF for us, but with the upcoming browser changes about hiding IP addresses, I want to move a bit faster.
I will admit from the start that I am not clear on the jargon about all of this: I know we use Azure, and have an EntityID and are part of a federation that is part of EduGain, but that's about it, so hopefully my question makes sense.

Does anyone have a list of the academic publishers/providers that I could be contacting to get this configured?
So far I've done: EBSCO, Wiley, Elsevier, Springer, am in the middle of doing JSTOR, and some parts of Proquest (RefWorks, O'Reilly).

Who else is ready to configure this type of authentication if I can give them the EntityID info?

And is there by any chance some kind of online directory that lists the providers and either URLs or contact information specifically for this process?
