Good progress is being made with the SafeNet project as it enters its second and final year. As we embark on the next phases of work in the timeline, we are pleased to be able to provide a more technical look at some of the thinking and architecture behind the project.

Additionally we have organised a half-day SafeNet briefing event in London on 14 October. Places are free but limited, follow this link to book your place. As well as a project update, we will specifically be facilitating a discussion around on the entitlement registry component to assist the project team in understanding the challenges related to gathering and managing entitlement data. We would like to discuss how a registry of entitlement could help in your routine workflows (e.g. cancellation exercises, annual reviews etc.), what data you currently have and how the project team can produce a user friendly service that benefits the community as a whole. If you'd like to know more about the SafeNet project please get in touch or follow the blog.

Jisc has invested in SafeNet, a two-year 'service-in-development' to improve assured continuity of access for UK HE institutions to the electronic journal articles for which they have paid. Background information on the project can be found at the following URLs:
