Author Information

Simon McLeish worked in conference organisation before the planning of an Internet conference led to work as a web designer during the dot com era. This developed into a career in digital libraries, including the development of online academic journals, research environments and authentication. Work on Shibboleth and Identity Management culminated in the production of the JISC Identity Management Toolkit and the book Access and Identity Management for Libraries. In 2013, Simon took up the post of Resource Discovery Architect for the Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford, and now divides his time between managing existing discovery and authentication services for the libraries and in research and development.
