Census Registration Service – Shibboleth authentication active

The Census Registration Service manages the registration process controlling authorised access to a number of resources and collections including:

* Cathie Marsh Centre for Census and Survey Research (CCSR) (for the Samples of Anonymised Records (SARs), 1991-2001).
* Census Dissemination Unit (CDU) (at Mimas for the aggregate outputs and related geographical datasets, 1971-2001).
* Centre for Interaction Data Estimation and Research (CIDER) (for origin-destination statistics, 1981-2001).
* UKBORDERS (at Edina for digitised boundary datasets, 1971-2001).

Registration to make use of these services will also provide access to Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS) and ESDS International through the UK Data Archive.

Authentication for on-campus and off-campus customers wanting to register to use these services is now available through the Shibboleth framework, and links to the relevant databases have been updated in eSearch.

It is possible for customers with an existing Athens-based registration to transfer their registration to the new Shibboleth authentication system. Details of this process and a walkthrough guide are provided in the relevant section of the eServices Support wiki.
