Secure Distributed Digital Libraries

The object of this project is to deploy and evaluate the economic sustainability model for federated digital libraries like Archon using Shibboleth as the underlying access control management framework. A federated digital library such as Archon contains holdings from different contributors and supports higher level services such as discovery, cross referencing, and classification. Because of its varied contributors, Archon requires differential granularity of access both in terms of objects and the services.
