The University's most loved bird, Raven [1], is 15 years old now and is getting some changes [2] like second factor validation [3]. Join us at this session where we'll show you some of these changes and where we will also talk about identity services like Lookup [4]. You will come away with some tricks on how you can make best use of these services to make yourself more discoverable and find other people in the University.
