Libraries provide seamless access to electronic content for library users through EZproxy and identity management protocols. Securing access to this content while protecting patron privacy and limiting unnecessary interruptions to access has become increasingly important as bad actors continue to look for new ways to tap into libraries' subscriptions and gain unauthorized access to content. Libraries, publishers and OCLC all share a stake in developing best practices to ensure library patrons have access to quality content, when and where they need it.

This session will provide all stakeholders an opportunity to voice their points of view on this issue as part of a broader dialogue on how we can work together to increase security, drive users to the library for their information needs and reduce interruptions to e-content access while still protecting patron privacy.

The audience will be invited after the presentations to share additional points of view and considerations, offer details about what they have done to address this issue and ask the panel questions. Attendees can expect to learn about how all stakeholders are working to make e-content accessible and secure and best practices to implement at their own institution.
