Last week, RedLink Network, a newly formed public benefit company, announced the launch of its free IP registry service for libraries and publishers to help them deliver secure access to subscribed content more reliably and efficiently. As a free service, RedLink Network invites rapid adoption among librarians and publishers to make IP-based authentication more efficient and secure. Thousands of libraries and hundreds of publishers are ready to be validated in RedLink Network, which also supports consortial hierarchies, link resolvers, Shibboleth, and branding elements for publishers and institutions.
RedLink also announced that Howard Ratner, Executive Director, CHORUS, has recently joined the RedLink Network Advisory Council, which helps guide RedLink Network as a public benefit company. Ratner joins a strong group of librarians, publishers, and technologists already on the RedLink Network Advisory Council.
