Moving towards Shibboleth authentication has been a slow process for Canadian academic libraries. This poster session is intended to present an overview of the current status of Shibboleth implementation from a Canadian academic library’s perspective. The author will begin with needs analysis for Shibboleth authentication for a Canadian academic library, then proceed to explore the issues and challenges surrounding Shibboleth implementation, and finally discuss the key roles of the stakeholders as well as potential collaborations among them.

Attendees may expect to gain a better understanding of Shibboleth authentication from our experience. The author hopes to collect feedback and learn the best practices by communicating with the attendees.
