  1. 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

      This is not currently in our near term development focus but is something we woudl like to explore in the future

      It has been placed into moved to the longer term backlog.

      Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.

    • 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…

            In-built notification is an area we would like to explore but is not currently in our near term development focus.

          • Ability to report on time taken to fulfil requests

            We would like to be able to run a report detailing the length of time requests take to be filled, so that we look at establishing sensible KPIs and identify any persistent issues.

            • 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?

              • Link to the catalogue from the request details

                It would be useful to be able to link directly to the catalogue when reviewing a request, so that we can see where it is, whether it’s available and then make intersite/reservation requests etc if necessary.

                • 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

                  • Coutts widget

                    We are starting to get to grips with using the Coutts widget in Aspire. We would like to see a similar lookup tool added to TADC so that we can have the option of purchasing e-books instead of raising scan requests.

                    • Display Requests in reverse order

                      By default the requests are listed with the most recently submitted at the top. At this time of year when a lot of requests are coming in (but they are not required until September) we would prefer to work through them in the order they arrive (so start with request 1). We only went live this week but already I have to scroll to page 3 to find the earliest submitted request. Would it be possible to click on the column headings to change the order of the list?

                      • Integrate TADC User Profiles with existing TARL Profiles

                        Many TADC users also have TARL.

                        Staff Users register with TARL and are assigned Priviliges.
                        Users then setup a separate Profile for TADC which requires exactly the same information that they have already supplied to TARL.

                        My Suggestiuon is that the TADC and TARL profiles are Integrated so that users don't separately register for both products.

                          We do intend to merge the different profiles but its not in the near term develoopment focus.

                        • New users need to be able to remove existing coversheets of resubmitted materials, at DC end to avoid duplication.

                          Existing offprints that are being re-submitted for continued use have an old BL coversheet which cannot be removed during the 'accept self-scan process'. The result is a bundle that has 2 coversheets which could be confusing. The presence of the old coversheet is however useful in identifying material as a re-submission, but should be removed from the newly created bundle.

                            I agree that the coversheet options available for normal uploads should be available in this scenario. This is not in our near term development focus, but I’ve put in in the backlog for review when we have got through some already planned items

                            tTe data which appears on the report spreadsheet is currently fairly basic. We would be interested in seeing some additional fields included as standard, such as date request was made, date request made live, and the need by date - if and when there is a facility for the academic to note this - so that we are able to see how often we are able to hit this deadline.

                              Request date, date copied and date released were added to the Requests report. This idea has been added to the backlog to add the need by date at a later point after we have addressed some planned items
