What is Authentication?

Stacks supports single sign-on providers for authentication such as OpenAthens, ILS systems, and more. ILS integration works with ExLibris - Alma/Primo, III Millenium, III Polaris, III Sierra, OCLC WMS, Sirsi Horizon, Sirsi Symphony, and SIP2-based systems. ILS integration enables 'My Account' user features including authentication, placing hold requests, canceling hold requests, viewing items out, renewing items out, and viewing fees and fines.
