Federated access

Jisc Collections has joined the UK Access Management Federation and our members can now access their institutional accounts on the Jisc Collections website via Shibboleth and Open Athens.

To activate access to your institutional account via Shibboleth or Open Athens you first need to link your Jisc Collections website current account username and password to your access management account.

Please follow the step by step process below or view a walk-through with diagrams

Please check that you have an institutional login with an HE / FE institution that is a member of the UK Access Management Federation and that has deployed in most cases either Shibboleth or Open Athens. If you are unsure as to the status of your institution please contact Mark Williams

  1. Make sure that you know your UK Access Management Federation username and password. If you have forgotten this, please contact your IT department or whoever manages your institutions UK Access Management directory
  2. Check that you have to hand your Jisc Collections website username and password for your institutional account on the Jisc Collections website. If you are unsure of this, please contact Oisan Man
  3. Contact your IT department or whoever manages your institutions UK Access Management directory, and ask them to add the Jisc Collections representative entitlement value to the directory. You should point them to the information available on this entitlement:
  4. Once your IT department / directory management has confirmed that they have added the entitlement, visit our website
  5. On the website you will see a yellow box as below. Select this link
