Access & Identity
Access and identity management is about ensuring that staff, students and researchers can access and personalise the online resources they are entitled to by giving appropriate information about themselves to the resource provider. These resources could be online journals, virtual environments to share data and exchange ideas, institutional repositories, grid resources for data storage or computation or even feeds of information, such as RSS. JISC work stretches from allowing learners to access their virtual learning environment and e-portfolio to researchers being able to use high end computational facilities and benefit from the latest research papers and data.
