This paper presents challenges and opportunities for academic libraries to increase their online presence in learning management systems (LMS). Successful examples from Athabasca University Library will highlight the benefits of a collaborative team approach to course development and Moodle software applications. This case study demonstrates how an academic library can participate fully as an active partner in the learning process. Specific focus is given to seamless access for students from the LMS to licensed electronic resources. Thoughtful design of new initiatives to increase library exposure to students shows how ongoing web maintenance can be minimized.
