Purpose – Course management systems (CMS) have an increasing role in information technologies found in all schools and learning environments today. Commonly, the backbone for how faculty teach distance education, CMS also has a role in classroom activities as faculty and instructors mount curriculum for students to consult and use at their own level and pace. Design/methodology/approach – This article suggests that CMS is a mainstream technology for academic libraries as they introduce and utilize a range of courseware products adopted for their students and academic programs. Findings: – Course management software and systems allow libraries to serve teaching faculty in ways that cooperation was not practiced until such products were available. Librarians became more integrated in the teaching process and now commonly support this technology and guide faculty in how best to use it for their teaching needs. Originality/value – Still at an early stage of collaboration between proponents of library technology and CMS, it is clear that this technology will grow deeper roots in library services and platforms will increasingly include CMS.
