Session Type: General Session
It all fits together: the campus authentication (and identity management) infrastructure is leveraged to share resources without divulging identity (if required) in a way that scales. So what's next? What if we successfully enable entirely new types of applications and relationships? How will this affect libraries, curriculums, and research projects? Will the boundaries between institutions blur? How will vendors play a role? Will we outsource our identity for someone else to manage because of liability and resource constraints? This session looks into the future and how our interboundary work might inform our institutions and change the nature of how we teach, research, and collaborate.
