  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Link to CLA "Check Permissions" page

        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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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

                      • Request form page range to accept only Arabic or Roman numbers

                        The page range fields currently accept any letters or numbers. I understand we might have pages to digitise that are in Arabic or Roman numbers. I woudl suggest to limit the letters accepted to the letters used for Roman numbers. This will hopefully minimise the cases of requester writing any other thing than a page range.

                          In the item details screen, create a 'view digitisation' button alongside the other action buttons ('add to my bookmarks', 'export citation') that appear at the top of the screen so that all user options are clearly visible and grouped together.

                            The changes to the new list view mean all item details are displayed in the list view so this is no longer a problem and the view online button is clearly visible against each digitised item.

                            If this is still an area you would like to see further enhancements made please do raise again.

                          • Request multiple digitisations from a reading list at a time, using one form

                            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. Items such as Articles (see attached pic). This might be achieved via a tick-able check box that invokes one form with the same date and course fields for multiple items. It has been described as arduous for academics to input the same digitisation request form details for every list item separately.

                              Default zoom that a digitisation is displayed set to 100% or 'fit page'

                              Less/no pixelation for text and images (when a file is downloaded there is no pixelation visible)

                                We are finding that as Academics are beginning to submit requests for digitisations from within their own lists on Talis Aspire, that it would be helpful if these requests could generate an email alert as with TA reviews to a central mailbox. We are having to timetable a member of staff to check this on a daily basis as we have found that requests have been missed as we weren't expecting them (particularly as we are not getting many through at the moment.) An option to switch an alert mechanism on would be helpful

                                • Ability to move/minimise the Request Digitisation box

                                  When you click on 'Request Digitisation' in a reading list, you can't move or minimise the resulting box to access the reading list behind it. It would be helpful if this box could have the same functionality as Microsoft windows e.g. minimise and move as there is no need for it to fixed in place.

                                      The underlying problem here is the inability to edit request details. We have some work scheduled which will address that.

                                      Below is some excellent feedback from Louisa about potential options and suggestions when excess of 10% is requested.

                                      Hi Camille,

                                      I see one of the potential strengths of Talis being that it can automate processes. The Concierge can give an immediate answer to the academic as soon as they make their request. This works well for requests within the copyright limits. However, Talis can possibly develop their…

                                      • Coversheet for extracts where publisher's clearance received

                                        Where material is excluded from the CLA Licence and publisher's permission is obtained, is it possible for a coversheet to be added with wording to reflect this?

                                        Current wording is as follows: "This Digital Copy has been made under the terms of a CLA Licence" etc...

                                          We do not generate a coversheet to ensure we are not generating a generic coversheet for possible custom custom requirements from a publisher/author etc. A coversheet can be added manually. We will not be focusing on this idea.
