One of the lovelier problems facing libraries who want to extend the use of their proprietary online databases to certain user populations. Most contracts for electronic resources define a user group such as "all currently-enrolled students, faculty, and staff at the University of South Florida." How do we let those users in and keep others out? Some database producers make this easier to do than others. You'll hear talk of proxy servers and methods used. The Florida Center for Library Automation set up a proxy authorization service for all SUS libraries in 1999. This service matches your library barcode number with the patron database records supplied by the Registrars offices at each institution. (The University of South Florida uses its own proxy server which was started in 1998.)
