Duke UniversityBlacklight ( for main campus; Canvas for business school.Aleph Aleph We no longer actively use Aleph's OPAC, but it is still live to support reserves functions and also some portions of ILR work. We have a webpage on the main library website that works with backend home-grown middleware and our LMS (Sakai) to present reserves info on login. The business school does not use this integration.

Course Reserves
Texas A&M UniversityEbsco's EDSBlackboard

We use Ares and Voyager, but they don't "talk" to each other. We add reserve items to Ares, and then we add them to Voyager. After we add them to Voyager, then the EDS can display those course reserve items.
Hildesheim UnivesityVuFind + OPAC provided by ILSMoodlehome-grownMoodleTeachers can add items to a reserve via an OPAC search. Otherwise no integration. Our home-grown reserves software provides a simple html list of items. Additionally we manually modify an item's call number and location so patrons can see in discovey that  the item is part of a reserve.

Homegrown Course Search that integrates voyager data (for physical reserves) and Ares data (for eReserves and streaming media).
Germany in general

None or home-grownNone or home-grownIn Germany there is no software available that ist comparable to Ares. There are lots of home-grown solutions but afaik none of them comes even close in functioinality and none is used by more than one or two libraries. There ist therefore a lot of interest to provide as much as possible of the managment and discovery functions directly in FOLIO at least in the mid- to long term.
