    User Authentication: Service Description

    • Product: 360 Core Client Center

    What is the User Authentication service and how can our library use it to control access to subscribed services?

    Serials Solutions' 360 Suite services for discovery -- 360 Search, 360 Link, 360 Core E-Journal Portal, and 360 Access Control -- share the same User Authentication service. This enables library patrons to sign on only once when accessing any of these subscribed services.
    The User Authentication service is included in your subscription and can be set up in the Client Center quickly, to authenticate patrons into 360 Suite services for discovery using existing user credentials, avoiding the need for you and patrons to create and manage yet another set of credentials. You will be able to set authentication methods and assign User Authentication to your E-Journal Portal, 360 Link results pages as required. The User Authentication service is automatically enabled for 360 Search clients, using the same user authentication information you supplied to us during your set-up phase.
    User Authentication is not supported in Summon.
