  1. Adding a note for library staff use

    There are a number of scenarios where we would like to make a note against a request to flag up some special circumstances which apply to that request.

    For example:

    1) Explaining we are copyright compliant where it might look like we're not e.g. where page numbers look excessive/two sections of book which make up less than 5%

    2) Explaining a discrepancy with the catalogue e.g. looks like we have an electronically available copy/sub but is actually a catalogue error

    3) Renewals note e.g. determined at renewal that although there's a newer edition it doesn't have relevant chapter so will…

      “All of the scenarios involving overriding the concierge or selecting an option allow the entry of notes.

      The ability to enter more general notes is something we would like to explore but is is not currently in our near term development focus.

    • Deletion of bookmark with request linked to it

      I would like to request some sort of communication to be sent to the requester and to the Digitisation Service when a bookmark is deleted and has a digitisation request linked to it.

      Our experience was with deletion of a bookmark with the request pending to be processed.

      There was no automated communication to the requester to notify him/her that the deletion was for a bookmark that had a digitisation request attached to it.
      There was no communication from the system to let the Digitisation Service or Admin side of TADC know that the bookmark had been deleted and therefore…

      • Ability to place a TADC digitisation in more than one place in a list

        Items quite often appear twice in our reading lists - Once in the recommended texts and then later on in the list in a weekly reading section

        It would be useful to have an easy way to put the same TADC digitisation in more than one place in a list

        • Allow academics/requestors ability to preview uploaded scans prior to course commencement

          Once a scan has been uploaded and we advise academics tthat it is now available on their reading list, they would like to actually view the pdf to ensure it is the correct item and sufficent quality, prior to the course commencement date when it becomes available to students.

          • Ability to search digital content module by bibliographic detail

            Could it be made possible to search the digital content module by bibliographic detail?

            This would allow us to check whether a particular extract is already in the collection and locate it, also to be aware of multiple articles from the same journal, etc.

              Whilst the concierge checks the vault and copy limits on any requests received, there may be a need to check in advance of placing a request by digitisation staff, so improved searching is something we would like to address but is not currently in our near term development focus.

            • The ability to reply to a request, or ask for further information

              There may be times when we would wish to enter a dialogue with the academic, particularly where the academic has overridden the concierge. At present there only seems to be the option to either reject or process these requests. We would like to be able to ‘reply’ to a request and to have a ‘pending reply’ type status while we clarify what is required. (I’m thinking for example of a response like “the pages you have selected exceed the maximum permissible. This appears to be because the pages you have selected do not quite tally with the chapter in this…

                • The ability to suppress the "Request Digitisation" link next to e-books in reading lists

                  We don't ever digitise from titles where we own an ebook version.

                  To avoid pointless requests and wasting the requester's time, we'd like the ability to suppress the "Request Digitisation" link for ebook items in reading lists.

                  That is, we don't want that link to appear to users if format = ebook.

                  I understand there will be a future development theme on integration between Digitised Content and Reading List modules - could this be considered under that theme?

                  • 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…

                    • Automatic notification of the need to renew digitised readings

                      We would like to receive a notice when digitised readings are about to expire. It would also be useful to have the ability to automatically inform the module leader of this, to see if they want the item renewed for another year.

                      • Ability to amend a URL when linking a digitisation to a Reading list in Aspire

                        We had an incidence when a digitisation request was raised by one of our Library staff and they inadvertently linked the digitisation to the wrong URL within the reading list in aspire.
                        Instead of being able to delete the incorrect URL and replacing it with the correct one, the complete request had to be withdrawn and resubmitted.
                        It would have been great if we could have just changed the URL and reloaded the original request.
                        Would this be possible please?

                            During the time gap between when Library staff click on the Request Digitisation link from a bookmark in TARL, and Library staff uploading a digitised file into TADC, having the status 'Digitisation Pending' displayed in the Reading list view in TARL, so students, academics and staff can identify why a resource on their reading list may not yet be available electronically.

                              We would like a tick box somewhere on the request form so that an academic can indicate they have a student with a disability. We can then work with the academic to ascertain what support the student needs in terms of an alternative format or use of assistive technology.

                                    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).

                                  • A communications facility in TADC to alert academics pre-rollover

                                    It's important for us to be able to easily communicate with academics of their current digitisations and whether they would like them rolled over into the next period. Apart from a Bournemouth University issue with unit IDs changing every year which makes the rollover of digitisations essential it is vital that we maintain a communications link within the TADC module between library staff and the academic community engaged with TARL and TADC to preserve the integrity and relevance of content within reading lists

                                    • Include module code in the subject line of automated emails

                                      We would like to add module codes to the subject line of the automated emails that requesters get when their requests are made live or rejected. Many requesters look after several modules and request numbers mean nothing to them. It would be easier for them to see at a glance the module concerned and they are also more likely to pay attention to the email as a result.

                                      • Indicate in Reading Lists, if a Digitisation request has been made and rejected

                                        If an Academic makes a Digitisation Request, which is rejected further down the line in Digitised Content. The Academic receives an email to this effect, but the Item in their Reading List has no indication that a Request was ever made. The "Request Digitisation" link is still available. I think Academics will forget they have requested the scan and it was rejected, and request a scan again....
                                        Once a Request has been rejected, please can this be indicated on the Reading List - at least for the period of the Module or Academic Year.

                                        • Filter TADC request list 'All stages' by blank

                                          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.
