Shiboleth is a technology allowing the use of Single Sign On service. It provides the united login (you log in only once). After login you can work with all CTU informational sources. Log in Usermap or Kos and you may search in the professional information resources. The ones you reach through Shibboleth are specifically labeled in the Catalogue of information sources.

Some databases do not allow log in through older types of protocols. In that case use the Shibboleth access.
