article description
In 2010 the Interlibrary Loan department of the University of South Florida, Tampa, moved to unify its ILLiad sign on practices and align with the University wide objective toward a single sign-on environment. Initial plans to implement authentication with CAS evolved in response to obstacles and system failures and resulted in an ILLiad, Shibboleth, and CAS combination. This article reviews the migration project and its culmination in a successful, and unique, authentication assembly.
