Sunday, January 1, 2006
The Great Plains Network (GPN) is a regional consortium of public universities in seven states: Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and South Dakota. This effective practice is a companion to "GPN: Building the Regional Middleware Infrastructure" (#294). It describes the creation of applications using middleware tools being developed as part of the NSF Middleware Initiative (NMI). These tools support collaborative research projects and the sharing of resources in a multi-institutional, virtual organization environment. This report is part of the NMI-EDIT Identity and Access Management Case Study Series.
