Examines a project to integrate digital libraries and virtual learning environments (VLE). Conducted a user needs analysis and evaluated three reading or resource list management systems including TalisList, Sentient Discover and an open source solution, Bookworm. Reports on the technical specification for the system, but also subsequent work to develop a rights management system and a ‘library area’ within the VLE where electronic resources can be placed. Discusses subsequent developments towards the integration of digital libraries and virtual learning environments, including the IMS specification for Resource List Interoperability (RLI). Concludes that collaboration between learning technologists and librarians is essential.
