摘要

The purpose of this project is to build the first Chinese cloud resources pooling platform with an on-demand self-service infrastructure for libraries and Library Management System
(LMS) vendors by developing a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) procedure to access heterogeneous library bibliographic records. It aims to provide a cloud computing cataloguing service to libraries, academic and LMS vendors in Taiwan for future use. The system platform design was developed under two stages: 1) constructing the cloud computing infrastructure includes setting up hardware facilities, integrating Internet resources and using a set of widely accepted free or open source virtual technologies, 2) deploying the cataloguing technology includes the development of software, using developers and a team of library professionals to reduce the technology gap and to ensure that library needs are taken
into account. The project demonstrates a potentially workable process in terms of availability and feasibility of a Chinese library cataloguing platform that is based on cloud computing infrastructure. It has the potential to reduce dependence on library management systems. The library cataloguing platform initially for research purposes which will eventually serve as a
model for 21st century software on demand and cloud computing platforms.

摘要

為了改善數位資源存取管理問題,美國Internet2發展的Shibboleth存取管理系統,已漸漸被很多已開發國家使用。Shibboleth是一個依據標準的開放源碼套裝軟體,提供機關內或跨機關間的網頁單一登入(Single Sign-On,簡稱SSO)及屬性交換的架構,容許網站對個人存取線上數位資源時,使用單一以及機關所控制的辨識方法,並且以保護隱私的方式作確認性的授權決定, 讓使用者無接縫的存取機關內部與外部的資源,減少現行使用者在使用不同領域的多種資源時,必須局限在一個校園或要去維護多個密碼;並且為身分提供者及服務提供者簡化了身分管理及存取許可。本研究分析比較英國、美國、澳洲、以及瑞士四個國家的聯盟組織以及採用的技術與政策,進而分析探討就規劃臺灣的數位資源存取管理聯盟提出建議。

Abstract

In order to solve the electronic access problems, Shibboleth has been developed by Internet2 in U.S.A., and has become an emerging solution for access management of electronic resources in a growing number of developed countries. The Shibboleth system is a standard based, open source software package for web Single Sign-On (SSO) across or within organizational boundaries. It allows sites to make informed authorization decisions for individual access of protected online resources in a privacy-preserving manner, for Identify Providers (IdPs) and Service Providers (SPs) simplify identity management and access permission. This study compares the organization structures, technologies and policies adopted by four federations: InCommon (USA), UK Federation, Australian Federation, and SWITCHaai (Switzerland). The comparison leads to further analysis and suggestion for a federation system model for future development of digital archives in Taiwan.
