If your organization uses an ILS or automation system that
implements one of our supported protocols, you can link CASSIE directly
to that system to authenticate users*.
Currently supported protocols/systems are:
Standard Interchange Protocol (Systems
that use SIP/SIP2)
Innovative Interfaces Patron API
Open Database Connectivity (Systems
that use ODBC)
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP / Windows Active
Sagebrush Athena with Web Server option
Book Systems Concourse
You define the conditions under which to block a user,
including expiration of library card, amount of fine or fee
balance, library card reported lost, and more. CASSIE will
automatically enforce your policies as users attempt to use a
computer, reserve a computer, or join a waiting list.
CASSIE maintains print account balance and daily time used
information for each user
internally, without altering any information in your
automation system's database.
If your automation system does not
support any of these protocols for authentication, a flexible import function allows
add user records that you have exported from your automation database.
You can also use the import function to migrate patron printing
deposit data when upgrading to CASSIE from another public
computer/print management system.
