  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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Instead of being able to delete the incorrect URL and replacing it with the correct one, the complete request had to be withdrawn and resubmitted.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?

  5. Display the status 'Digitisation Pending' in Reading list view in TARL

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. Ability to indicate that a student has a disability

    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.

  8. E-book availability checks

    We would like to see a tool added to the concierge that would check availability of e-books for purchase from e-book aggregators, such as Askews, Dawson or EBL. As we do not digitise from items available as e-books, we would find it helpful to have the checks done by the concierge rather than perform them manually for each request.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Rollover - email to requestors

    An automated way of contacting all requestors to find out what digitisations they would like to have rolled over would be very useful. Currently this involves sending lots of emails to the requestors of digitisations, to ask which digitisations they want made available next year, which is rather labour-intensive and time consuming.

  12. Rollover digitisations to new time period

    At present, the default start and end dates TADC uses for digitisation rollovers are the previously entered dates plus 1 year. Should module dates change, this will mean that course details need to be edited manually on a list-by-list basis. It would be useful therefore to have the default dates set as the new time period for the reading list that the items are on (or at least the option to choose these dates).

  13. include reject reason in email

    When a Digitisation request is rejected, a reason is selected from a drop-down list. It would make sense for this reason to be included in the reject email to the Requestor. At present the same or similar information has to be typed into the Notes field.
    (It may also be desirable, for institutions, to be able to ad to the reasons for rejection).

  14. Could we view in TADC a list or report of all of the EHESS CFP requests we've made so far?

    We'd like the ability to view any on-order or already purchased EHESS items. This is to avoid duplicating requests to the BL as they do not inform us if we've already requested something.

  15. Removal of "check for local electronic submissions" button for journal article extracts

    Reading list entries for journal articles have a link to "check for local electronic subscriptions".

    Where articles are digitised, the link to the digital extract is further down the page. It is sometimes necessary to scroll down to see this, particularly on mobile devices and other small screens. Hence, student clicks on "click to see e-sub" link (and gets "not available" message) and does not realise that digital extract is available as this is not visible.

    Can this "check for local electronic subscriptions" link be removed in cases where there is a digital extract available? (Generally , there should not…

  16. Display indication of Expired digitisations within TARL

    Within TARL Expired digitisations are not clearly identifiable. The current display of Expired digitisations within TARL:

    1. From the TARL edit list view - still appears as ‘Digitisation Live’
    2. From the TARL list view - still displays the Online Resource buttons
    3. With the CNAME feature active, within the bookmark item view - if the browser is not maximized, the 'view digitisation in a new window' button appears

    The display of the Expired digitisation in these three areas is confusing for both staff and students.

    This idea suggests to make changes to any or all of these three areas…

  17. New status or reason of "Ordered from BLDCS"

    I am wasting a lot of time by reviewing Requests that are at the status of Referred / Copy Pending, when many of these have had orders sent to BLDSC. This is not obvious until you open the Request, and although this info is displayed on the right of the screen, because I am assuming that something needs to be checked / done, I am scrolling down all of the Concierge checks before I realise that we are actually waiting for a file from BL.

    Please can this be added as a reason under Referred

  18. Making note field searchable (e.g. identifying BL requests for invoicing)

    When we receive invoices for documents supplied to us from the British Library, requests are identified by the order number which the BL allocates. This is usually in this format: 00524015.

    Currently it is not possible to match up requests on our invoice with requests in the DCM. We can input the BL order number in the note field but really this needs to be a searchable field so that when we receive an invoice we can match up items listed with requests in the DCM.
