Abstract Currently, in Taiwan there is no demonstrable solution for access management to the many heterogeneous electronic resources that academic and university libraries provide for users, such as the full texts of electronic journals and books, electronic databases, among many others. Shibboleth has been developed in U.S.A. and the United Kingdom and has become an emerging solution to the access management of electronic resources in a growing number of developed countries. Our experience in starting a virtual federation by setting up an Identity Provider (IdP) at Academia Sinica and a Service Provider (SP) at the Chinese Geoscience Union (CGU), Taipei, a society which publishes a SCI journal entitled “Terrestrial, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences”, as well as request Shibboleth based service from some participating Shibboleth publishers like Elsevier, Springer and Thomson ISI, can provide valuable experiences to any library or organization wanting to start a Shibboleth federated access management for reference.
