  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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)?

  15. 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…

  16. 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).

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
