Introduction to LTI
BibliU's LTI implementation allows users to have an account seamlessly created for them by clicking on the tool in their LMS/VLE course.
BibliU requires both email and name to be transmitted to the application through the LMS. This is sometimes referred to as "Public" privacy or "Unrestricted".
We use this information to create a personalised account for the student, this allows them to:

- Contact us through our in-app support system and receive responses
- Match Single Sign-On accounts with their LMS equivalents.

In addition, we store the context of the LMS section in order to segment users by course, which is a requirement for some content licensing arrangements.
