  1. Allowing to attribute a note/hashtag during request input

    It would be great if while requesting a digitisation for an item, we would be allowed to add a keyword or a hashtag. This way, we could keyword a request with, for example, 'week 1' or 'week 5'. This way, in the All request area, if you could filter/search it by keyword/hashtag it would be quicker to get to more urgent requests (I feel like this would be easier and better used than the need by date). Further, you could use the hashtag for things like 'accessibility' or to connect requests with a particular academic that has certain needs or…

    • Batch digitisation requests for a course instead of individual item requests

      Our users have suggested that it would more efficient if they could select multiple items on a reading list to be digitisited, using one request form - as a batch. When there is no change to the list each time period, they find it too time-consuming to re-request each reading individually and click through all the Request Form pages. This might be achieved via a tick-able check box that invokes one form with the same date and course fields for multiple items.

      • Abiltiy to set the 'Needed anytime' request view as default on our homescreen

        The 'Needed by' field in our digitisation request form defaults to the start of our academic year (currently 01/08/2016); however some academics, when placing requests, edit this to the date their course begins, which makes sense if not aware of how the system works behind the scenes. The TADC homepage defaults to showing the first, 'Overdue' requests tab (as 1st August was 6 months ago, everything automatically appears overdue...) so we have been missing these edited requests (even if they were placed longer ago). I only recently noticed this as we are about to start Semester 2 and somebody chased…

          We are going to decline this due to the low number of votes and the time this has been raised.

          You can work around this by changing the tab to be the one you want and then saving the page in your toolbar bookmarks and then use that as your default for viewing the homepage in TADC.

        • https

          Would it be possible for digitised content URLs to be https addresses? Then they could be posted in Canvas without error messages about "insecure content from within a secure site" coming up.

          • Many lecturers want to upload a document of their own making can we have an easier way

            How can lecturers upload their own document? The only way at present is requesting it manually and fooling the system that it is a book and then asking for digitization but it would be better if there was an easier way.

              TADC is for clearing copyright compliant material so we are going to decline this. However, this is something Talis are working towards. 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)."

            • Customising the drop down filter names on TARL

              Ability to customise the drop down filter names to prevent academic confusion on terminology used.

              We call our copyright cleared scans on our reading lists "Copyright Cleared Content". We've spent a lot of time promoting this to our academics. The filter on TARL whilst really useful could be better if it could be customised for each HEI to reinforce their own promotional name for their copyright content. Currently it confuses our academics who are asking for an easier way to view their requests but don't realise that "Digitised Resources" refers to their "Copyright Cleared Content".

              • Optional Request Digitisation button next to Books and Journals

                We have a number of lecturers who instead of creating a chapter or article record on TARL, use the TADC Request Digitisation on a book or journal record and filter using the prompt boxes to identify the chapter or journal article they want. Unfortunately they type 'chap 1' or '1' instead of the chapter title and don't always include page numbers. My team have to find out and input the correct information on TARL and request again using the chapter/article record.
                My question is: Could the Request Digitisation button on Book and Journal records be optional for each institution? We…

                  With the changes we are making to the List Edit interface in reading lists it will become far easier for an academic to be clearer when they are requesting articles and chapters. We will also be reviewing bookmarking to see how it can become easier to bookmark chapters and articles. Therefore we are declining this idea.

                • Remove notification of new TADC admins to all admins

                  When a new user requests access to TADC, all existing TADC administrators get a notification.
                  Ideally we should be able to customise where these go e.g. a distribution list or not get them at all (issue along these lines raised). We could monitor these requests via online reports.
                  We could use the mail system to trap these responses and send them off to someone but that is considered a bandaid by us.

                    Due to the low number of votes we are declining this idea. You can manage this by ensuring only those that need the Admin setting in TADC have it, and receive the emails, for all general users they can just have access to edit and move requests forward.

                  • Differentiation between print and online journal articles?

                    Many journals, particularly in arts and crafts subjects, are still accessed by students in hardcopy rather than online (where they may not be available at all). Can we differentiate between a print and online article, to save time of students?

                    • Include notes page range in EHESS requests to BL

                      It would be useful if EHESS requests made through TADC also included details of notes page ranges in the request as currently only the chapter/extract pages get passed onto the BL.

                        Would it be possible to generate a report of requests for extracts from Journals (and books) NOT OWNED by the institution.
                        The Librarians would find this useful as they may wish to consider subscribing to a Journal if it is being used heavily.

                        • naming convention Course or Module

                          In our set up, Reading Lists will be for a Module. When a Digitisation Request is made the form has a tab for "Course details". This actually requires the module details (to us a Course is a degree programme, consisting of a numbe rof modules). Librarians here, agree that this is going to be very confusing for our academics. Can the term "course" be changed to "module" or can this be customised?

                            After reviewing we are declining this idea as course does cover all terminology for all universities. We have found each universities refers to modules, units etc differently so leaving as course prevents confusion.

                            This is also common terminology in RRO’s when it comes to reporting.

                          • Suppress "Request Digitisation" for some modules

                            We have a lot of partner courses, many of whom are taught at least in part by UW academic staff. We have identified some potential new overseas courses where we cannot digitise content, but where we may hold an Aspire list. For these modules, we would like to have the Request Digitisation button to be suppressed so that lecturers cannot place requests that we then need to remove.

                              Sometimes, if you have the possibility of multiple ISBN's for one scan, it is useful to manually check the CLA site to determine what the concierge has done. Can a link be incorporated into TADC?
                              Alternatively, or additionally, it would be usfeul to be able to see from the concierge workflow, which ISBN's were checked and the outcome of each.

                              • Return to list Tasks

                                When working with Digitisation Requests, it would be helpful, after dealing with one request, to return to the list you previously had.
                                EG I would normally work on a list of requests for a specific module, after reviewing a copyright query for one, I would want to return to the list for the module and review the next one / or upload a file etc.

                                • Add vol. no. for book in multi-volume work into digitisation request form

                                  Currently, when requesting a digitisation of a chapter in a multi-volume work, all of the relevant details are extracted from the bookmark to populate the request form with the exception of the number of the volume the chapter is in. This means that the person processing the request has to spend time locating the vol. no. in order to find the section to digitise. As the info is already in the bookmark it would make sense to incorporate the vol. no. as part of the digitisation request form for books and cut out this unnecessary step.

                                    • TADC request view including date of request

                                      The requests view on TADC currenlty shows 7 fields, none of them beeing the date of request.
                                      The date of request can only be seen once we go into the request itself and scroll down to the Worklog.
                                      As we work through requests in order of arrival and consider our internal service levels it would be very useful to have the date of request visible whenever we are on any of the requests lists.

                                      If this is not something other institutions would find useful, could the change be made for the institutions that want this?

                                      Thanks!

                                      • TADC default view: requests needed anytime

                                        The default view on TADC Home page shows requests overdue.
                                        We would find more useful to have as a default view the requests needed anytime.
                                        The current view if not useful to as as we work through requests chronologically by order of arrival and not by when they are due.
                                        It is a bit missleading to see nothing on the default view to find out that actually we do have requests ... is just that they are not overdue.
                                        Having a view of all requests needed at any time will therefore be much more efficient fur us.
                                        If this is…

                                          We will not be focusing on this idea due to low votes, but it is possible to change from the default by selecting the “Needed anytime” option

                                        • Digitised Content player in Internet Explorer

                                          Currently it's not possible to view digitisations in the player in IE: users are required to click the "View digitisation in a new window" button. Talis explained that it is currently not possible to embed the player in IE due to Cross Domain restrictions, but suggested I raise this as an idea to help gauge how other institutions felt about this.

                                          If you feel this would be useful/important functionality to add, please vote for this idea.
