  1. Could we view in TADC a list or report of all of the EHESS CFP requests we've made so far?

    We'd like the ability to view any on-order or already purchased EHESS items. This is to avoid duplicating requests to the BL as they do not inform us if we've already requested something.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

    backlog  ·  Keji Adedeji responded

    This is is not currently in our near term development focus but purchasing workflows are something we would look 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.

  4. Add field ‘Article Number’ as an option in the bookmarking process

    Some articles have article numbers instead of page numbers. So I hope this option would be available when we are bookmarking. It will help students to obtain the essential reference/citation information when needed.

  5. Batch complete Rollover

    When rolling over digitisations it is possible to complete the rollover process through the 'Successful' tab under 'By Pre-Clearance Status' on the 'Rollovers' tab.
    Currently, it is possible to select an entire page worth of rollovers and batch complete them, however as there are only 25 results to a page we have to process a lot of a very small batches and then wait a while as the page refreshes. As we roll over hundreds of digitisations at a time we find this quite time consuming.
    Would it be possible to either increase the amount of results to a page…

  6. Withdraw expired digitisations

    Currently expired digitisations can not be withdrawn, but there are situations where this functionality would be useful.

    We have been informed by our RRO that a certain publisher has asked to be excluded from our licence, and as such we need to remove any content from that publisher. We also need to prevent any future user requests from auto-matching with previously digitised material in the vault.
    This would also be useful for quality control purposes, and resolving issues that sometimes only become apparent in reports, after the digitisation has expired.

  7. LCN reporting in TADC

    It would be really useful if the TADC reports included the Library control number from which the item was digitised. I know reading lists reports can provide the LCN so I was hoping the same could be implemented in TADC. This will help identify items in our library collection that have been digitised and ensure they remain in our collection and are not accidentally weeded.

  8. 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?

  9. 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…

  10. Schedule dates for TADC requests to go live/or option to hide digitised content

    We have had some instances where a request for digitisation has been made and that the scan go 'live' on a specific date. It would be useful to be able to upload digitised content and schedule the go live date in these instances so the work can be fully completed and uploaded in advance. Alternatively a feature for list editors to hide/make visible digitised content within a bookmark could be a potential option.

  11. time period

    Time periods in TADC: Add the ability to either hide or remove time periods from TADC "Available for rollover' menu. QUT has 33 individual time periods and has been running TADC for 3 years which is 99 time periods to scroll through to select the most current time period. We only rollover from previous year so would like the ability to hide any time period older than 2 years without impacting on the ability to report on those earlier time periods.

  12. Can we add a 'no review/purchase required' tag to Reading Lists Reviews

    Can we add a 'no review/purchase required' tag to Reading Lists reviews for academics to apply to certain items on very long reading lists?

    This would allow them to keep all their reading material in one list AND allow such items to be filtered out of review list presented to Library Assistants when starting review (possibly linked to the section Key/Recommended/Background)?

  13. Bulk withdrawal of digitisations removed from reading lists

    At the beginning of each semester, lecturers are reviewing their reading lists and removing their digitisations .Library staff are then required to withdraw a large number of digitisations from the Digitised Content. The ability to bulk withdraw these digitisations with a standard notification to the lecturers would be really useful.

  14. Expand the TADC vault to all TADC institutions

    As TADC cannot re-use the content of the DCS, TALIS should investigate the possibility that the vault content could be opened out to all TADC institutions, as allowed by the CLA’s TPTP licence. This would be a huge boon to both small and large TADC users, as it would reduce duplication, and allow for improved workflows.

  15. Ability to request digitisation for an image

    Ability to request digitisation for an image for copyright, where the parent on the bookmark is a book .
    At the moment we can only put it in as a chapter and change it to image once we have digitised it. This is problematic as each time the list is copied or rolled, this will have to be changed over again.

  16. Remove trigger for "Existing electronic copy available - referred" for known sources where we cannot link to online

    There are known sources which prohibit linking to the online source, e.g. HBR, so if possible could the referred status for this source be flagged so that when rolling over digitisations only , we do not need to have to select 'source from print copy' as we are unable to source from electronic or link to electronic sources. Our annual rollover of digitisations would be vastly streamlined if TADC knew that we couldn't link to the electronic source so therefore did not ask.

  17. More editing options for dictionary entries in TADC

    To have the ability to add additional 'special requirements text' (e.g. %REQUEST_DETAILS%) to the subject line or message of an email, would enable us to fully customise our messages that the Academics receive.
    For example, we are wanting to add the module code to the subject line of the Live Request Email, but this is not possible as the 'special requirements text' for the course details is not in that specific entry.
    Currently you can only move the 'special requirements text' within the existing dictionary entry, not between different entries.

    We are only now looking at the dictionary entries as…

  18. 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.

  19. When the British Library do not hold the item, can TADC add a "GET IT FOR ME" function that BLDSS have.

    When the British Library do not hold the item, the request is rejected via TADC. Can TADC add a "GET IT FOR ME" function that asks the BL to obtain the Copyright CLeared article from another institution. We use this function via our library management system easily enough, but it would be useful not to have to place a request twice.

    It would be really helpful to have further information on how you see this report working, are you looking for a worklog report for each requests or something at a higher level? More information may allow others to input to the idea and vote on this.
