"The Boston College Libraries are pleased to begin working with Sentient Discover to streamline our Course Reserves operation and provide greater integration of library resources into the campus online learning environment. We feel that Sentient Discover has tremendous potential to improve our internal processes related to Course Reserves and the creation and maintenance of reading lists. We also think that Sentient Discover will allow our subject-specialist librarians to play a much more proactive role in creating resource lists for use by faculty in the campus WebCT environment."

"The University of York has chosen Sentient Discover to manage their online resource lists, after a careful evaluation.

We believe that the integration with Blackboard which Sentient Discover offers will significantly enhance the teaching and learning process at York, improving the student experience and making life easier for staff. We look forward to working with Sentient Learning to achieve this aim."
