Recently Deakin University implemented a new Learning Management System, Desire2Learn (D2L). D2L is a new generation e-learning platform that offers an intuitive interface and allows for a flexible approach to learning. Deakin University Library partnered with faculties during the transition to D2L, and through that systemic collaborative approach, had the opportunity to embed library resources into the University’s LMS. This paper concentrates on the work undertaken by Deakin University to integrate library resources and services into D2L. You will discover how the library created information widgets, and built systemic partnerships with academic staff and University divisions for the benefit of the wider student body.
