Talkin ’bout my federation – bilateral connections

Single sign-on icon

Date and venue

Thursday, 14th October 2021 at 2 pm BST/ 1 pm GMT/ 9 am EDT


This installment sees the continuation of our popular webinar series aimed at our publisher customers, where we aim to demystify federated access and ensure you’re getting the most out of our products and services.

For our return, we’ll be discussing bilateral connections — a similar, but altogether different approach to single sign-on.

We’ll explore the differences between bilateral connections and federations and what implications they might have for both libraries and content providers.

There will be a Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
