  1. Statistics - Tracking individual users

    At the moment Statistics - Views, print & downloads - show general usage but it does not show the statistics for individual users. What we get at the moment is the total amount of traffic (e.g. views and downloads) but we cannot tell when a single student opens an article 10 times: currently, the result we get is 10 views, but being able to track single users the result would be also 1 single view.

    In this way, we would be able to compare and verify the exact number of students/lecturers who are using the system and not only the…

    • Uploaded module student numbers in the hierarchy snapshot, All list items and All lists reports

      Can a column for uploaded module student numbers (as opposed to manually added student numbers) please be available in the hierarchy snapshot, All list items and All lists report? We do not currently use Reviews and this would ease our admin related to book purchasing.

      • Schedule dates for TADC requests to go live/or option to hide digitised content

        We have had some instances where a request for digitisation has been made and that the scan go 'live' on a specific date. It would be useful to be able to upload digitised content and schedule the go live date in these instances so the work can be fully completed and uploaded in advance. Alternatively a feature for list editors to hide/make visible digitised content within a bookmark could be a potential option.

        • Requesting digitisation of documents

          The ability to request digitisation of resources when they are given the resource type of 'document'.

          Similar to idea 'Requesting digitisation of legal resource' but for documents more generally.

            The requesting of documents is something Talis are working towards. Currently Talis Aspire Digitised Content only enables you to upload materials that require copyright clearance, but the Talis Player will not only enable you to upload material that needs to be copyright cleared, but also other materials.

            Talis have been working with beta partners to develop this, and we will keep you up to date with the wider release of this through the usual updates (webinars, newsletters, events etc).

          • Batch complete Rollover

            When rolling over digitisations it is possible to complete the rollover process through the 'Successful' tab under 'By Pre-Clearance Status' on the 'Rollovers' tab.
            Currently, it is possible to select an entire page worth of rollovers and batch complete them, however as there are only 25 results to a page we have to process a lot of a very small batches and then wait a while as the page refreshes. As we roll over hundreds of digitisations at a time we find this quite time consuming.
            Would it be possible to either increase the amount of results to a page…

            • Ability to request digitisation for an image

              Ability to request digitisation for an image for copyright, where the parent on the bookmark is a book .
              At the moment we can only put it in as a chapter and change it to image once we have digitised it. This is problematic as each time the list is copied or rolled, this will have to be changed over again.

              • Add a 'date' field to identify when request was submitted on referred page

                This would be useful to identify how long a request has been waiting to be actioned.

                • Report to identify where digitisation request has originated - RL or webform?

                  It would be useful to have the ability to pull data which tells us if a request has come via a Reading List or via the webform - it would help us identify engagement with Reading Lists or the VLE.

                  • Suppress openURL link for Digitisations

                    We would like the option to suppress the openURL link, when we have a link to the digitalisation of an article. At the moment, when you expand the readfing list item, as well as the link to the digitalised copy there is a "Click for full text" link. This link goes via our link resolver and invariably results in a "Sorry we do not have this article" message. If we did have access to the article then we wouldn't have digitalised it in the first place. An option to disable would cause less confusion with our users - which is…

                    • Remove trigger for "Existing electronic copy available - referred" for known sources where we cannot link to online

                      There are known sources which prohibit linking to the online source, e.g. HBR, so if possible could the referred status for this source be flagged so that when rolling over digitisations only , we do not need to have to select 'source from print copy' as we are unable to source from electronic or link to electronic sources. Our annual rollover of digitisations would be vastly streamlined if TADC knew that we couldn't link to the electronic source so therefore did not ask.

                      • More editing options for dictionary entries in TADC

                        To have the ability to add additional 'special requirements text' (e.g. %REQUEST_DETAILS%) to the subject line or message of an email, would enable us to fully customise our messages that the Academics receive.
                        For example, we are wanting to add the module code to the subject line of the Live Request Email, but this is not possible as the 'special requirements text' for the course details is not in that specific entry.
                        Currently you can only move the 'special requirements text' within the existing dictionary entry, not between different entries.

                        We are only now looking at the dictionary entries as…

                        • Request digitisation for resources which have online resource button ticked

                          We have had feedback from a number of academics with long readings lists with a mix of online sources and resources which need to be digitised. When they edit their list , every resource as it is digitisable has a request digitisation option, which they find confusing as they want to be able to quickly navigate to those resources which aren't available online to request those only. Often we get requests from academics for digitisations in error as the presence of the request option makes then think that they need to request even though the resource is online.

                              • Exceeded copy limit workflow stage

                                It would be useful to have an exceeded copy limit workflow stage added to TADC. We found that we have to keep a note of the local workflow stages outside of TADC for requests that exceed the copy limit. For these requests, we check if an e-book is available for purchase and if not, we contact the lecturer asking them to prioritise one chapter. Having a mechanism to monitor those steps in TADC would mean that all information relating to a given request is available in one place.

                                • A communications facility in TADC to alert academics pre-rollover

                                  It's important for us to be able to easily communicate with academics of their current digitisations and whether they would like them rolled over into the next period. Apart from a Bournemouth University issue with unit IDs changing every year which makes the rollover of digitisations essential it is vital that we maintain a communications link within the TADC module between library staff and the academic community engaged with TARL and TADC to preserve the integrity and relevance of content within reading lists

                                  • E-book availability checks

                                    We would like to see a tool added to the concierge that would check availability of e-books for purchase from e-book aggregators, such as Askews, Dawson or EBL. As we do not digitise from items available as e-books, we would find it helpful to have the checks done by the concierge rather than perform them manually for each request.

                                    • Rollover digitisations to new time period

                                      At present, the default start and end dates TADC uses for digitisation rollovers are the previously entered dates plus 1 year. Should module dates change, this will mean that course details need to be edited manually on a list-by-list basis. It would be useful therefore to have the default dates set as the new time period for the reading list that the items are on (or at least the option to choose these dates).

                                      • Deletion of bookmark with request linked to it

                                        I would like to request some sort of communication to be sent to the requester and to the Digitisation Service when a bookmark is deleted and has a digitisation request linked to it.

                                        Our experience was with deletion of a bookmark with the request pending to be processed.

                                        There was no automated communication to the requester to notify him/her that the deletion was for a bookmark that had a digitisation request attached to it.
                                        There was no communication from the system to let the Digitisation Service or Admin side of TADC know that the bookmark had been deleted and therefore…

                                        • Include module code in the subject line of automated emails

                                          We would like to add module codes to the subject line of the automated emails that requesters get when their requests are made live or rejected. Many requesters look after several modules and request numbers mean nothing to them. It would be easier for them to see at a glance the module concerned and they are also more likely to pay attention to the email as a result.
