ebooks cooking with gas
Tue, Sep 25, 2007
With the Shibboleth to Athens Gateway in production at UHI, using our Guanxi IdP, I’ve now got eBooks access working through the gateway too.
Together with Elizabeth McHugh, our eResources manager, who has been promoting the service to the librarians, I’ve negotiated direct access to individual eBooks through the gateway, which wasn’t possible before and I’ve provided a Short Code Service which dramatically cuts down the length of the URLs required to access the eBooks.
Elizabeth has been helping librarians put these short URLs into Millennium, our new library management system and we’ve even had a compliment sent our way from Perth College. Makes it all worthwhile.
