Linking libraries and learning management

Lorcan

Here is a nice example of integration between library and learning environments.

The University of Michigan Library provides course reserves information to the Sakai-driven campus course management system through RSS. We will discuss the system’s framework, describe technical challenges, and suggest collaborative strategies for implementing a similar service. Usage statistics, user responses, and strategies for overcoming technical challenges will also be discussed. [EDUCAUSE | Resources | Resource Center Abstract]

Note the use of RSS, which now seems to be everywhere.
