Shibboleth access for Cambridge Journals Online

Share this on social media:

Cambridge University Press has announced that its first wave of Shibboleth compliance is now live. Now, all subscribing institutions who are members of the UK Access Management Federation can access its journals using Shibboleth.

The Shibboleth system is a standards-based, open source software package for web single sign-on across or within organisational boundaries. It allows sites to make informed authorisation decisions for individual access of protected online resources in a privacy-preserving manner. Library users in institutions that use Shibboleth can now access all Cambridge journals using their institutional usernames and passwords.
