March 1, 2024: Program Update – Single Sign On for our ELearning site for InstitutionsMarch 1, 2024:

At QMed, we continuously explore how we can make things better with our ELearning courses –

One of the things we explored was the option of a Single Sign On, also known SSO. Several libraries have an SSO tool to allow their students and faculty to access various library resources they subscribe to. This helps in many ways

  1. Library users –  do not need to remember several different user ids and passwords
  2. The resource providers – do not need to physically enroll each person. They also need not worry about ineligible users having access – when students or employees leave the organization
  3. The institution and the library feel good about making things easy for their users.

QMed first provided access using the SSO – to Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi. The librarian Ms Indira and the vendors of the SSO – (Knimbus) coordinated with us and helped us make this happen

The next two institutions were AIIMS Bhopal and AIIMS Bathinda – through their SSO – MyLoft. Again the vendors were very helpful.

We hope to do this in more institutions that have an SSO platform and we hope that those who do not have one, will get one soon!
