Available Services

The following list of services are available through the UK federation. Please note that in most cases these services are licensed and an organisation must make a separate agreement with the service provider to access a particular resource.

The link in Service column is to the resource's login page, while Provider links to the service provider's website. Selecting the link in the Service info page column takes you to further information that we hold about the service, intended for use by home organisation staff setting up access to the service, and including (where available) the attributes used by the service.

You may also find it useful to visit the attribute usage section of the federation website. Here you will find examples of how attributes are used in practice within the federation, along with a table outlining the attributes recognised by a sample of the federation member services.

There is also an RSS feed: New services.
