Access control and authentication

Sketches and brainstorms


End user perspective

From the viewpoint of a person simply trying to access content they won't directly interact with the Access / Authentication piece at all.


Faculty, instructor, or similar

This scenario examines a case where a person in charge of a group wants to attach some resources.

Librarian, reserves manager, or another third party

In this case the perspective is that of a librarian looking to add some materials for a professor to preview.

Outside researcher

An outside researcher finds something in the system that he or she wants to look into more closely. They request access which sends off a message to an adminstrator / curator who takes a look then approves access. This creates a special token and passphrase which can be shared with the researcher for short term access.
