Abstract: Libraries should consider the ways of developing their services around users' workplace in order to reach their users and offer the most appropriate services according to the notion - libraries are where users need them. In academic institutions the storage of libraries' resources is not enough and libraries must project them into users' learning environment. In recent academic libraries’ theory and practice very important trend is spreading their virtual presence through the integration into learning management systems (LMS). Following these points the main goal of this paper is to explore effects of integration of libraries’ e-services into learning management system at the university from the students’ point of view. The focus of the research is on the students’ perception of new learning environment because both libraries and LMS exist to improve students’ learning. Research results revealed mostly positive students’ attitudes toward inclusion of e-service in LMS. Furthermore, one of positive results of such integration is empowerment of relationships between students, teachers and librarians. The research results support the findings from literature which stress the importance of academic librarians’ cooperation with academic teachers because teachers have a key of subject contents within learning management systems and both should jointly work on developing of students’ information literacy skills.
