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.
We are exploring this idea, to see if it is possible to add a rejection status into reading lists.

It would be beneficial if an academic had a section within TARL to see what scans they had requested and what status it was currently at. It would be especially useful if they could see the reason why something had been referred. This would benefit email communication between library staff and requestors, even more so if the request number was included in this view as that is the easiest way of finding something in TADC.
