In the UK Reading List Management solutions have been a key component is presenting the library in the VLE/LMS. The reading list is typically closely integrated with Blackboard, Moodle etc etc. Talis pioneered the approach in the UK (and Australia). They took a different approach to the 'Course Reserve' module in the ILS (confusingly termed the LMS -Library Management System- here in the UK) and have become perhaps the main way libraries integrate resources into the VLE/LMS. Indeed libraries may pay more for their Reading list software than their ILS--so that illustrates where the value is moving.....
Vendors such as ExLibris and SirsiDynix seem to have woken up at last to the value of this approach and now offer their own Reading List Management solutions which have begun to get some interest in the US..(see the ExLibris press release about Washington State http://www.exlibrisgroup.com/default.asp?catid=%7B916AFF5B-CA4A-48FD-AD54-9AD2ADADEB88%7D&details_type=1&itemid=%7B960D9786-F841-4FF8-902C-FEA80FB94C6B%7D

Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] Looking for libraries present in their campus' LMS
We are on the same “page” as you. Haha
I have been pushing to have some system that reflects that students major or areas of interest, with links to our actual home page. Ive thought about using Campus Guides from Springshare's API for the data. Writing the code that interacts and gets the student info is the hard part.
We use the Blackboard system.
