Sentient Discover integration with WebCT or Blackboard announcement

As if to confirm some points from Martha Whitehead’s paper below, that there is a growing availability of means to integrate library systems with CMS, this press release announces news of integration plans for this U.K.-based “learning resource management system” with both WebCT and Blackboard (though this press release points only to the WebCT announcement).

Even more interesting perhaps is that Sentient’s Discover product is also starting to bridge the world of library collections and learning object repositories; its 2.0 version, to be released in January, will allow users to retrieve results from both their institutional library catalogue and the MERLOT metadata repository in the same search. – SWL
