I've put together some information about TDNet, and comparisons of it
with the first two competitors you list (the last didn't exist at the
time the comparisons were done).
will get you to the appropriate page.  It includes a page with links
to some of the TDNet customers around the world.  The page also
includes links to the TDNetUsers list that I manage, in case you're
interested in joining.

Finally, a colleague, Peggy Cooper, will be doing a presentation at
Internet Librarian conference in November in Palm Springs.  A bit of
added useful information from that talk is extracted below.

Additional information about TDNet may be found at:

The Boise State University installation may be seen at:
