Announcing LibLynx Gateway, a new e-resource access solution for Libraries

Press Release: LibLynx [January 31, 2017]

Alexandria, VA - LibLynx, an independent provider of cloud-based Identity and Access management (IAM) solutions, is launching LibLynx Gateway (, an online resource access management tool for libraries.

LibLynx Gateway uniquely combines a powerful access and authentication infrastructure with an optional personalized and mobile-ready user portal, providing libraries with a highly flexible and customized solution.

Gateway gives librarians and other information managers an easy and affordable way to securely and efficiently provide patrons with Single Sign On (SSO) and or proxy IP access to library resources, on and off-site, from a single user portal. Library administrators have total control over who has access to what, including integration with local directories to simplify user management. Flexible reporting tools support budget requests and renewal decisions.

"Publishers and libraries share a common interest in improving the access experience for users, but the key is getting the balance right between accessibility and security." said Tim Lloyd, CEO of LibLynx. "Too many libraries are struggling with legacy solutions that don't deliver the modern authentication technologies and reporting tools they need. LibLynx Gateway meets that need with an easily configurable out-of-the-box solution requiring minimal IT involvement."

LibLynx Gateway will be marketed and supported in partnership with ComaxSys, a specialist library vendor with over a decade of experience in implementing and supporting access solutions for a wide range of library clients. ComaxSys offers libraries a comprehensive support service from initial consultation through after sales support.
