in Birmingham, organised by JISC’s Access Management team. Names has relevance to two of JISC’s funding areas: repositories and identity management. The latter is mostly focused on helping institutions to implement the Shibboleth access management system, but this meeting was set up to look at identity management in its widest sense.
