WAYFless URL definition

WAYFless URLs are links that libraries can create to allow their users to directly access a content item using federated authentication (e.g. Shibboleth) credentials without having to detour through the SpringerLink institutional login page (WAYF page).

"WAYF" stands for "Where Are You From" and indicates the institutional login page selection list that a user would otherwise have to select from in order to identify their institution. 

Further information relating to setting up WAYFless URLs can be found here.
