Hi all, I forgot to introduce myself;)

I'm Jos Westerbeke, librarian at Erasmus University Rotterdam for 11 years already. Big part of my job is access management for e-resources.

I have an IT background, and I am always more or less busy with IAM. And especially the last few years access management is growing.

Alongside IP based access databases, ten years ago the library bought a database on CDROM and published it online on a Citrix server for students and researchers. That's over. But IP based access remained. And, as many other university libraries, our library prefers IP based access so far. Basically, for two reasons: User experience, and the landscape is not ready yet for SSO. (We struggled with one publisher for half a year arguing about privacy, attributes and profiles;) Publishers and libraries are not ready.

RA21 sparked me to take action, end 2017. I drew attention to UKB (Consortium of NL univ. libraries) for attribute minimization. Then a LIBER presentation with Peter G. and Jiri about library IAM. And thanks to them (and Sander) we started FIM4L. And not at least, I did my best to find (university) libraries to make our voice heard for safeguarding SSO access. Again, librarians are very welcome! This FIM4L group with so much (technical) support is a great chance to get things done. Spread the word...

Thank you all for joining this great effort!

Have a nice weekend,

Subject: [Fim4l] Participants of FIM4L - list update

Dear participants of the FIM4L initiative,

The email list of FIM4L is growing. That's a good thing; we get attention from libraries, NREN's, and many supportive partners, from EU and recently the US. (As you can see in the email just send by Peter G. containing a PDF with names for the charter doc.)

To keep track of all participants of FIM4L, we decided in our last call to ask every participant for a short introduction. At least your name, function and affiliation. And why you're on FIM4L would be nice too. Just because many of the list don't know everyone involved.

We also want to ask you whether you're fine with publishing your institution and personal name on the http://fim4l.org website. (in development)

Future participants will be asked to give a short introduction too.

So, could you please give:

  1.  short intro
  2.  consent to publish your name on website (name and affiliation only)

@Gerrit: thank you for your already given extensive intro!

Thank you in advance!
