Identity management

Simple and sophisticated

How hard is it for individual users who don’t have a corporate or university subscription to log in to your site? The experience readers have accessing your content is as important as the experience they have reading it. Frustration with login technologies can lead users to give up and seek competing content—or look for your content elsewhere.

Smooth and secure

Literatum’s built-in identity and access management (IAM) module offers user-friendly sign-up, sign-in, and profile management. Log-in suggestions prompt users for their user ID and password with auto-filled login fields.

  • Passwordless access: Give readers the option to log in via a one-time email link or code sent to their mobile phone—no more forgotten passwords.
  • Single sign-on: Allow users to log in to more than one site with a single set of credentials.
  • Social media login: Enable users to log in to your site via their Facebook, LinkedIn, or other social media accounts.

Administrators can implement multi-device two-factor authentication; requiring both a password and a code sent via email or text message improves the security of users’ accounts.

Integration with third-party systems

Literatum also supports single sign-on (SSO) with external identity management systems using standard SSO protocols such as SAML and OpenID Connect. We also integrate with publishers’ custom SSO systems.

Universal access

IP authentication has long been the standard for controlling content access at libraries and universities. While popular with content consumers, it’s unfortunately just as popular with content pirates. And it doesn’t provide publishers with the valuable user data needed to deliver target content and offers for improving conversion rates.

Atypon is investigating authentication methods that will allow users to log into their university or corporate accounts just once and then move freely among various publishers’ content, to which they have rights from any device or location. The result: increased content usage and reduced IP-related piracy.

“Off-campus” access

IP authentication requires access to a library’s or institution’s network, either through a physical connection or WiFi. For scholarly and professional publishers, Literatum supports federated access via Shibboleth and OpenAthens, as well as device pairing and Google CASA, so users can access their institution’s content even when they’re off-site.

Access management

Unlimited sales and subscription models

Literatum offers an extensive set of native content license models and the ability to create new ones from any business model you devise. This enables you to accommodate any scenario that a prospect might require—agility that can mean increased sales.

New revenue streams

Sell access to entirely new products from existing content. Create collections of the year’s most popular articles. Upsell premium products and content updates, and license content to individuals that was previously available only through a library or corporate subscription.

Literatum makes it easy to set up and test sales and subscription models to determine which ones deliver on your sales goals. Best of all, experimenting doesn’t require a developer or incur any added cost.
