  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…

    • 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

        backlog  ·  Keji Adedeji responded

        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.

      • 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?

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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…

              • 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…

                • A TADC API

                  Specifically for usage - prints, downloads and views. We have a project that is monitoring 7 modules - the usage of the items on these modules. We want to automate the gathering of data as much as possible. We can use the Talis linked data API to get the data. For hardcopy books we can use the LCN (which is the bib number in our LMS) to retrieve loans, reservations and renewals automatically, and we would ike to be able to look up TADC data for each request. An API seems the obvious solution.

                  • Request digitisation for resources which have online resource button ticked

                    We have had feedback from a number of academics with long readings lists with a mix of online sources and resources which need to be digitised. When they edit their list , every resource as it is digitisable has a request digitisation option, which they find confusing as they want to be able to quickly navigate to those resources which aren't available online to request those only. Often we get requests from academics for digitisations in error as the presence of the request option makes then think that they need to request even though the resource is online.
