This paper describes the benefits and issues encountered through repositioning digital library services into the course assessment area or folder of a University Learning Management System (LMS). In 2016, the RMIT Vietnam Library embedded the digital library subject guides and Ask a Librarian chat widget into all 170 assessment folders within the LMS. Impacts on indicators of digital literacy, digital inclusiveness and cultural barriers to seeking library support are examined.
