Tuesday, March 6, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM (GMT)
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
The 6th McShib Forum will be held on the 6th March 2012 at Edinburgh Business School. As well as an opportunity to catch up on developments and discuss issues and concerns, we'd also like to use this meeting as an opportunity for you to feed in to the design of a new administrative interface for the UK federation.
McShib is for anyone involved in support access and identity management within institutions and both library staff and technical staff are strongly encouraged to attend. You don't even need to be Scottish to attend, although you may be required to wear tartan.
If you are new to McShib, you may wish to join the mailing list.
The event is a forum so participants are actively encouraged to put forward ideas for presentations and topics they would like to discuss.
10.00 - 10.30 Arrival, coffee and registration
10.30 - 11.30 Update on federation developments
Ian Young and the UK federation team will be talking about the current developments within the UK federation including the new 'location assertion' and how it might be used to support the need to know a user's physical location. The helpdesk team will also talk about common queries, and give some of their advice and tips to avoid running in to problems.
11.30 - 12.30 RAPTOR
RAPTOR is now a v1 release and lots of institutions are thinking about how to use it. The RAPTOR development team will be available to answer any questions you may have, and the RAPID project will talk about their experiences of testing RAPTOR at Newcastle University.
12.30 - 13.30 Lunch
13.30 - 14.30 Interface brainstorming session
The federation is looking at creating an interface where members can go to update their data and send it through to the federation. There are lots of things this service could do and be, but we want it to serve the needs of the community. This interactive session will look and what the requirements of attendees might be.
