  1. Greater prominence for notes in scan "declined" notification

    We would like the individual notes from TADC administrators to have greater prominence in the notification email that goes out to requesters when a scan is declined.

    This year we've had an unprecedented number of emails from academics who have been confused about why a scan request has been declined - even though the exact reason was contained within the notification email. The note from the TADC administrator which can be added at the point of rejecting the request (e.g. "Note from Rob Challis: Book available electronically. Direct link added to resource list.") is hidden at the bottom of the…

  2. Adding a date to Notes to Library

    We would like to see a date added in Notes to Library for back-end TADC use. Currently when library staff report on notes there is no date field included making it impossible to tell when notes were added. This will help with managing actions recorded in the notes field and ensure timely response.

  3. TADC number in New List Edit

    Currently in New List Edit the status of any digitisation requests appears (live, referred, rejected etc.) but it would be useful if the TADC number could also be displayed. It would be even better if this number could be hyperlinked to the TADC request page to enable quick access to the request.

  4. The option to suppress an automatic notification from being sent to a requester when action is taken on a digitisation

    We would like to be able to suppress an automatic notification email from being sent to a requester when action is taken on a digitisation request.

    We've recently been carrying out post-rollover cleanup and would like to avoid spamming or confusing academics when, for example, we identify a request that was removed from the reading list several years ago and has only just been picked up by the rollover improvement, and now needs withdrawing. It is time consuming to type out an explanation essentially asking them to ignore the email.
    We realise you can change the email address of the…

  5. Ability to change dates on 'Live' digitisations

    Being able to change dates on 'live' digitisations would greatly improve our ability to manage requests and lessen the amount of re-submits we have to do. It would clear up our queues and expedite any requests made of our team, therefore improving our service significantly.

  6. Digitisation #number on browser tab

    [Screenshot of idea attached]
    It would be useful if the browser tab for the digitisation you're looking at had the hashtag number on it, e.g. #9488

    At the moment it just says 'Digitised Content' which is not very descriptive when working on lots of digitisations.

    Thanks,
    Andrew Manton-Maund

  7. Abiity to add a chapter author to metadata in a live TADC request

    Sometimes I come across requests that are live on the system but lack a chapter/section author, despite this being different to the book editor. Perhaps I'm a perfectionist but for the sake of accuracy I'd like to be able to add the section author in without having to replace/copy the request. Could this be enabled please?

    (You can edit existing section authors, but not add one where this was not in the original request - screenshot illustrates an example where I would like to add in an author's name)

  8. 'Last Updated' date on All List items report

    Would it be possible to add a 'last updated date' for the all list items to accompany the 'Last Published' and 'Date Added' in the 'all list items' file? This is so we can catch any items that have been updated e.g. library note, and the academic has not published / requested review.

  9. 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.

  10. Add an option for "BL library privilege" in the "source of original" drop down menu.

    We would like to add another option when uploading a document to TADC that says "BL library privilege". This would be used when we have purchased a copy of a chapter/article from the British Library when we own the item in print.

  11. 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.

  12. Add field ‘Article Number’ as an option in the bookmarking process

    Some articles have article numbers instead of page numbers. So I hope this option would be available when we are bookmarking. It will help students to obtain the essential reference/citation information when needed.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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).

  16. TADC digitisation and adding priorities

    I have noticed when academics/staff submit digitisations, you cannot see the priority of the chapter they want digitised - e.g. Core, Recommended or Additional. We try to only digitise items with a Core priority. This creates a loophole for us. We end up spending a lot of money on digitisation requests which we shouldn't be.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
