Serials Solutions Access Control Service Improves Remote User Access

Jun 03, 2010

Serials Solutions, a business unit of ProQuest, announced the development of Serials Solutions Access Control Service, a hosted authentication and proxy service that will improve access for users. Access Control Service will simplify the process of accessing library resources from remote locations, combine data management with access control, and eliminate the current requirement for IT resources to implement and manage this service.

Available later in 2010, Serials Solutions Access Control Service will authenticate users, verify their entitlement to electronic resources, and connect them to the library's subscribed content providers. Libraries will also be able to consolidate management of their e-resource subscription data and its access control through the Serials Solutions Client Center, which will include a user authentication component and a Software as a Service (SaaS) proxy.
