  1. 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.

  2. The option to suppress an automatic notification from being sent to a requester when action is taken on a digitisation

    We would like to be able to suppress an automatic notification email from being sent to a requester when action is taken on a digitisation request.

    We've recently been carrying out post-rollover cleanup and would like to avoid spamming or confusing academics when, for example, we identify a request that was removed from the reading list several years ago and has only just been picked up by the rollover improvement, and now needs withdrawing. It is time consuming to type out an explanation essentially asking them to ignore the email.
    We realise you can change the email address of the…

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Uploaded module student numbers in the hierarchy snapshot, All list items and All lists reports

    Can a column for uploaded module student numbers (as opposed to manually added student numbers) please be available in the hierarchy snapshot, All list items and All lists report? We do not currently use Reviews and this would ease our admin related to book purchasing.

  6. Email notifications when a digitisation request is assigned to a user

    Would it be possible to get an email notification when a digitisation request is assigned to you?
    We are wanting to let our academics request their own digitisations and then the library can assign the request to the relevant member of staff to deal with, depending on the outcome. At the moment each staff member would need to log in to TADC everyday to check if anything has been assigned to them, whereas getting an email would notify them straight away. This would help with our workflows for getting more digitisations on the system, within a reasonable amount of time.

  7. 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.

  8. 'Last Updated' date on All List items report

    Would it be possible to add a 'last updated date' for the all list items to accompany the 'Last Published' and 'Date Added' in the 'all list items' file? This is so we can catch any items that have been updated e.g. library note, and the academic has not published / requested review.

  9. 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.

  10. Digitisation #number on browser tab

    [Screenshot of idea attached]
    It would be useful if the browser tab for the digitisation you're looking at had the hashtag number on it, e.g. #9488

    At the moment it just says 'Digitised Content' which is not very descriptive when working on lots of digitisations.

    Thanks,
    Andrew Manton-Maund

  11. Abiity to add a chapter author to metadata in a live TADC request

    Sometimes I come across requests that are live on the system but lack a chapter/section author, despite this being different to the book editor. Perhaps I'm a perfectionist but for the sake of accuracy I'd like to be able to add the section author in without having to replace/copy the request. Could this be enabled please?

    (You can edit existing section authors, but not add one where this was not in the original request - screenshot illustrates an example where I would like to add in an author's name)

  12. Add a 'date' field to identify when request was submitted on referred page

    This would be useful to identify how long a request has been waiting to be actioned.

  13. 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.

  14. Exceeded copy limit workflow stage

    It would be useful to have an exceeded copy limit workflow stage added to TADC. We found that we have to keep a note of the local workflow stages outside of TADC for requests that exceed the copy limit. For these requests, we check if an e-book is available for purchase and if not, we contact the lecturer asking them to prioritise one chapter. Having a mechanism to monitor those steps in TADC would mean that all information relating to a given request is available in one place.

  15. Add an option for "BL library privilege" in the "source of original" drop down menu.

    We would like to add another option when uploading a document to TADC that says "BL library privilege". This would be used when we have purchased a copy of a chapter/article from the British Library when we own the item in print.

  16. Report of items with new editions /e-versions before starting Rollover process ?

    Have the ability to run a report ( which checks for newer editions / e-versions before rollover. It might have to pick up items where last year the lecturer said they were happy with the older edition, but still let us know there were newer edtions after that? We have a policy of not rolling over material unless it's confirmed that the material is required, &
    sometimes we don;t get a reply to a renewal email until just before the course starts, start the rollover process , find a potential newer edition, & have to decide between checking with the…

  17. 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).

  18. 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).

  19. Suppress openURL link for Digitisations

    We would like the option to suppress the openURL link, when we have a link to the digitalisation of an article. At the moment, when you expand the readfing list item, as well as the link to the digitalised copy there is a "Click for full text" link. This link goes via our link resolver and invariably results in a "Sorry we do not have this article" message. If we did have access to the article then we wouldn't have digitalised it in the first place. An option to disable would cause less confusion with our users - which is…

  20. Requesting digitisation of legal resources

    Add the ability to request digitisation of legal resources.
    The addition of new legal and law resources types in reading lists is appreciated, but it is still not possible to request digitisation for these resource types.

    This is something Talis are working towards. Currently Talis Aspire Digitised Content only enables you to upload materials that require copyright clearance, but the Talis Player will not only enable you to upload material that needs to be copyright cleared, but also other materials.

    Talis have been working with beta partners to develop this, and we will keep you up to date with the wider release of this through the usual updates (webinars, newsletters, events etc).
