Among the partners of the Welsh Repository Network we have been discussing
e-theses in quite some detail and I am trying to find out whether anyone is
considering using Shibboleth to restrict access to certain theses or collections
of theses within their respository to purely academic audiences, not
necessarily just members of the specific institution but on the basis of having
a verified role in HE. We have some institutions wanting dark archives of
theses and/or raising some concerns about who exactly might get access to
their theses and this seemed a logical (if complex!) avenue to investigate.
We would be interested in hearing from anyone who has explored this option.
Many thanks in advance
