The Stellent system also will manage the metadata component of TPL's entire Digital Collections and Virtual Reference Library, and will make this digital content available worldwide. Locus Systems, Inc., Stellent's integration partner in Canada, will lead TPL through its Stellent Content Management implementation and integrate the system with TPL's Sun Solaris operating system and BEA portal.
