Higher education institutions have traditionally purchased separate systems to manage library services and to manage content for online learning. These systems are often procured separately and managed by units within the organisation with somewhat different operational objectives and business processes. This paper explores the feasibility of extending the brief for a new ILMS by including requirements for integrated management and access to all ‘learning resources’ irrespective of origin and format and describes how the institutional context as much as the technical options may influence the success of the system selection process.
