Customising the drop down filter names on TARL
Ability to customise the drop down filter names to prevent academic confusion on terminology used.
We call our copyright cleared scans on our reading lists "Copyright Cleared Content". We've spent a lot of time promoting this to our academics. The filter on TARL whilst really useful could be better if it could be customised for each HEI to reinforce their own promotional name for their copyright content. Currently it confuses our academics who are asking for an easier way to view their requests but don't realise that "Digitised Resources" refers to their "Copyright Cleared Content".
Whilst this might appear a minor issue, it is a question of promotion and academic engagement - which is a major issue that needs addressing on many fronts. The ability to customise filter names would address the criticism of "Lots of jargon and names referring to the same thing, which is so confusing" and reinforce each HEI's chosen promotional name.
Due to the low number of votes and the time this idea has been open we are going to decline this idea. We will monitor if we hear this feedback from others.
