The Identity Management Project blog

Welcome to the Identity Management Project blog where you will be able to follow the progress of this project – one of a number of Jisc co-design projects running throughout 2013 and into the early part of 2014.

As part of this pilot co-design process, Identity Management was identified as one of the key challenges by the five partner organisations, in particular addressing the cultural, social and political barriers to good identity management within Higher Education. This project explores the issues from a user’s point of view and will identify practical options for addressing the barriers identified. The scope for this project includes library issues but also challenges i.e. related to HR and student services.

If you want to find out more about this project, please go to the About the Project page where we try to answer some of the more typical questions.

This project receives input and oversight from its Taskforce, which includes people with the relevant skills required to identify and address identity management issues for users; people who are dealing with day to day issues, as well as those from existing relevant access and identity management groups. If you would like to volunteer to be a member of the Taskforce please email Christopher Brown or Verena Weigert.

To solve some of the issues raised by the Taskforce this project has funded a number of projects (or “sub-projects”). We will be using this blog to post regular updates and news on these projects and their outputs, so watch this space.
