Stacks supports single sign-on providers 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 old requests, canceling old requests, viewing items out, renewing items out, and viewing fees and fines. Only that system which has been selected in the Authentication System drop-down menu will be deployed.
