On April 18, 2008 the College at Brockport's librarians and IT staff stirred up a successful one-day conference: "Integrating Library Services into Learning Management Systems." “Library-2-LMS” (its shortened title) was a one-day regional conference where participants learned about ways in which libraries had incorporated information, databases, tutorials, and assessment instruments into learning management systems. The concept for the conference originated during a library/IT meeting. One librarian, with support from several departments, wrote and received a $5000 COCID (Conference on Computing in the Disciplines) grant from the statewide SUNY Technology committee. This amount plus a small registration fee paid by participants covered all aspects of the conference.
