About us

The User Management SIG, formerly LSP Authentication/Authorizations SIG, works with developers to guide the integration of authentication systems (such as Shibboleth, OAUTH, InCommon) and authorization systems (Grouper) into the FOLIO platform. The SIG defines privileges associated with the various types of users. Incorporates issues of privacy of personally identifiable information.
