Single Sign-on Now Available

We’re announcing a change for NYU users signing in to BobCat, NYUHome and Blackboard.

Beginning on Monday, January 11th, NYU users signing into either BobCat, NYUHome or Blackboard with their NYU NetID will automatically be signed-in to the other two systems. For example, if you sign-in into NYU Home, you will automatically be signed-in to Blackboard and can access your personal account and e-shelf in BobCat without having to re-authenticate. Conversely, if you sign-in to your BobCat account, you’ll automatically be signed-in to NYU Home and Blackboard. This new service will the need to sign-in repeatedly as you move between the academic systems you use.

For example, if NYU users log into NYU Home, they will automatically be logged into Blackboard and can access their personal account and e-shelf in BobCat without having to re-authenticate. Conversely, if they log into BobCat, they will automatically be signed-in to NYU Home and Blackboard.

This initiative was undertaken in response to requests for fewer authentication screens as people moved between NYU systems and to provide better integration of these academic systems. This new single sign-on was developed by the Scholars Portal Team, which is an NYU ITS/ Libraries initiative. The Scholars Portal Team is continuing to develop seamless access to other NYU tools and systems. We’ll let you know as this happens.
If you have questions about the new sign-on, please send us a comment to: http://library.nyu.edu/scholars/comments.html
