  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…

    • 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).

      • 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…

        • Can we add a 'no review/purchase required' tag to Reading Lists Reviews

          Can we add a 'no review/purchase required' tag to Reading Lists reviews for academics to apply to certain items on very long reading lists?

          This would allow them to keep all their reading material in one list AND allow such items to be filtered out of review list presented to Library Assistants when starting review (possibly linked to the section Key/Recommended/Background)?

          • Email notifications when a digitisation request is assigned to a user

            Would it be possible to get an email notification when a digitisation request is assigned to you?
            We are wanting to let our academics request their own digitisations and then the library can assign the request to the relevant member of staff to deal with, depending on the outcome. At the moment each staff member would need to log in to TADC everyday to check if anything has been assigned to them, whereas getting an email would notify them straight away. This would help with our workflows for getting more digitisations on the system, within a reasonable amount of time.

            • 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.

              • time period

                Time periods in TADC: Add the ability to either hide or remove time periods from TADC "Available for rollover' menu. QUT has 33 individual time periods and has been running TADC for 3 years which is 99 time periods to scroll through to select the most current time period. We only rollover from previous year so would like the ability to hide any time period older than 2 years without impacting on the ability to report on those earlier time periods.

                • Withdraw expired digitisations

                  Currently expired digitisations can not be withdrawn, but there are situations where this functionality would be useful.

                  We have been informed by our RRO that a certain publisher has asked to be excluded from our licence, and as such we need to remove any content from that publisher. We also need to prevent any future user requests from auto-matching with previously digitised material in the vault.
                  This would also be useful for quality control purposes, and resolving issues that sometimes only become apparent in reports, after the digitisation has expired.

                    • Add edition and date to item details in request emails

                      Currently only the the Book title, Authors/Editors and ISBN(s) are given in TADC emails (success or reject). For users who are requesting on multiple editions/years, it is not easy to work out which exact item the message refers to.

                      It would useful if these key bibliographic details could be added to the email to avoid confusion.

                      • Can the ticked chapter box be changed to 'opt in' rather than 'opt out'?

                        In relation to the request digitisation form we have noticed that some requests which far exceed the CLA limits are being approved by the concierge due to the 'this is one chapter' box being ticked by default. Would it be possible to make the ticking of the 'this is one chapter' box an opt in choice, rather than have it set to 'on' by default?

                        • Bulk withdrawal of digitisations removed from reading lists

                          At the beginning of each semester, lecturers are reviewing their reading lists and removing their digitisations .Library staff are then required to withdraw a large number of digitisations from the Digitised Content. The ability to bulk withdraw these digitisations with a standard notification to the lecturers would be really useful.

                          • LCN reporting in TADC

                            It would be really useful if the TADC reports included the Library control number from which the item was digitised. I know reading lists reports can provide the LCN so I was hoping the same could be implemented in TADC. This will help identify items in our library collection that have been digitised and ensure they remain in our collection and are not accidentally weeded.

                            • When the British Library do not hold the item, can TADC add a "GET IT FOR ME" function that BLDSS have.

                              When the British Library do not hold the item, the request is rejected via TADC. Can TADC add a "GET IT FOR ME" function that asks the BL to obtain the Copyright CLeared article from another institution. We use this function via our library management system easily enough, but it would be useful not to have to place a request twice.

                                A team of us deal with TADC requests and assign stages e.g. Book on order. We would like the ability to filter the request list to see only the requests which haven't been assigned a status so we do not visit requests unnecessarily.

                                  Currently we are able to add the name of the chapter when requesting digitisation, but when we are using a section of a book instead there is no option to give it a name, all that is recorded are the page numbers. Sometimes academics give the section a name, or in the past we ourselves have given it a name eg. Extracts from......

                                      It would be really helpful to have further information on how you see this report working, are you looking for a worklog report for each requests or something at a higher level? More information may allow others to input to the idea and vote on this.

                                    • A TADC API

                                      Specifically for usage - prints, downloads and views. We have a project that is monitoring 7 modules - the usage of the items on these modules. We want to automate the gathering of data as much as possible. We can use the Talis linked data API to get the data. For hardcopy books we can use the LCN (which is the bib number in our LMS) to retrieve loans, reservations and renewals automatically, and we would ike to be able to look up TADC data for each request. An API seems the obvious solution.

                                      • Edit and pre-clear process during rollover

                                        Why does no data stay in the fields when you Edit and Preclear a number of requests as it does when editing just one request?

                                        It is useful to be able to see all the data and be able to change only what is necessary. This is often only one field such as student numbers or the requester. Whereas currently we have to re-enter all the field data as it opens as empty fields apart from the dates.

                                        The process requires looking at one request anyway to see what the fields contain and what might need updating. Then you have…

                                        • Expand the TADC vault to all TADC institutions

                                          As TADC cannot re-use the content of the DCS, TALIS should investigate the possibility that the vault content could be opened out to all TADC institutions, as allowed by the CLA’s TPTP licence. This would be a huge boon to both small and large TADC users, as it would reduce duplication, and allow for improved workflows.
