site was created to show you Remote Patron Authentication, or RPA. The link below is
an example of the possible resources you could restrict to local access, but still allow
access remotely via proper patron authorization.
Please click on the link below for a demonstration.
Today, libraries have been charged with the responsibility of controlling Internet-based access to restricted resources. Patrons are coming to expect access to library resources whether they are inside the library or at some remote location.
ALS Remote Patron Authentication delivers real-time patron authentication against Dynix and Horizon library systems, requests redirection to restricted resources, and requests authentication identification to online content and database providers.
