  1. Copy sections

    We would like the ability to copy sections from one reading list to another.

    Davis Renfree said there have been similar requests in the past, however, they date from a while back when everyone was using Classic Edit, so it would be useful to raise a new idea. This would also help Talis gauge support for the idea as they continue to develop New List Edit further.

  2. Pin "Unpublished changes!" message to top of New Edit screen

    The fact that the Action Bar (Table of Contents, View, Citation Style, etc) stays pinned to the top of the screen in New List Edit when a user scrolls down a long list is very helpful.

    However, the big yellow "Unpublished changes!" message, which is also really useful, doesn't stay pinned and so disappears as soon as a list editor scrolls down from the top of the list. Given that academics may be making changes anywhere in a list, and that our academic staff are still very prone to forget to Publish, it would be really helpful if the "Unpublished…

  3. Review list titles to be arranged in the same order as on the list including the list sections if there

    It would be great if, when reviewing list titles for each Talis list, we could see the review list titles in the same order as they appear on the list including the list sections if there.

  4. Warning re. live digitisations when deleting a list

    Would it be possible to warn a user that there are live digitisations attached to a reading list they are about to delete?
    We have had a few instances where people have created a copy list and deleted the original (accidentally or purposefully), without realising that there are live digitisations on the list.
    It looks from the TACC side that everything is fine (the module code, title, year etc are correct and the digitisations are live) but its only when we receive a complaint about lack of access that we uncover what has happened.

  5. Alert for library notes

    It would be useful if there was a way we could be notified whenever a new library note is added to one of the reading lists since there could be notes on there asking for a certain number of copies to be bought or for a title to be purchased in a different format which we do not know about especially when academics do not request reading list reviews. I have stumbled across a few lists with library notes asking similar questions and no-one in our team is aware of them.

  6. search

    In the New List Edit View / Published view you cannot use the browsers built in find function to search through an entire reading list.

    You can only search for items that are in close proximity to where you are on the page.

    In the attached video I am pressing ENTER as I move down the list searching for the item. It only finds and highlights the item when I am close by.

    I use the browsers find feature as part of my workflow to jump around the reading list while I am editing. This way I can quickly find…

  7. Setting a default reading list style for students

    It would be useful if list publishers could set their own default reading list style and it "sticks" for students. At present list publishers can set a view to a particular style, however that view only lasts during the time they are looking at the list. Any other action on the reading list and the style reverts back to the tenancy default. With users such as the Law Faculty they could set a default citation style and this will be consistently viewed by students rather than having to be manually applied by individuals. We use several citation styles depending on…

  8. Retrieval of deleted lists

    We would like a function to retrieve deleted lists. We know that on some platforms you are able to go back 30 days or something similar to restore items and we would like a similar feature added as we recently found that an incredibly long list with 200+ items were deleted and had taken the lecturer a while to compile it. We believe that even though this is a rarity there should be some sort of fail-safe in place to accommodate the accidental deletion of a reading list.

  9. New Role to View Draft Lists

    I would like to suggest a new role that allows the holder to view draft lists but not publiish or edit them.

    In our university lists are entered several different ways. Some academics ener lists themselves but lists are usually entered by library staff or departmental administrators. However, academics understandably want to have final say on what appears on their lists and so want to see the draft lists before they are published.

    Having to publish lists before the academics can see them mean that students start using the lists before they are really complete. Also if there are major…

  10. Multiple holdings on one bookmark

    It would be really helpful if we could have multiple holdings, or LCNs against one bookmark.

    Here at RHUL we have a large literature collection, and where an academic has indicated the specific edition is not important, we have a situation whereby we have to have multiple bookmarks for the same title in order to accurately alert students to all the different copies that might be available.

    This ends up not only being time consuming to manage, but looks extremely messy on the list.

  11. In View Edition, move or add the Close button (for closing box) at the top of the box to save scrolling down

    In View Edition move or add the Close button (for closing the View Editions box) at the top of the box to save scrolling down. As most of the time we are looking for new editions (which are at the top of the View Edition box), it would make sense to have the Close box button at the top rather than at the bottom. It would probably be better to add rather than move as it would be useful for those who have to scroll down to have it at the bottom too.

  12. More refined translation of 700 field

    Talis is currently treating the 700 MARC field as follows:

    If 700$e=Author, Talis puts the name found in an Author field
    If 700 $e =Editor or Editor of Compilation, Talis puts the name found in an Editor field

    All fine so far. However, if anything else is found in $e, Talis defaults to using the Author field again.

    We use the 700 field to indicate donors and former owners of donated collections. As per OCLC guidance we indicate that this 'person' is a donor or former owner via the $e field. But these people are not displaying as authors within…

  13. Review level notes and/or assigning reviewer notes

    It would be very useful from the perspective of someone supervising the reviews process to have:

    a top-level review note that anyone who looks at a review can see

    and/or

    a note that can be sent to an assignee when a review is assigned to them

  14. Option to schedule metadata refresh

    We like the option to schedule metadata refreshes at particular time/days, still including the choice to manually run these as I understand customers may still wish to log in and push a refresh at a time of their choice (and/or switch off the scheduling option when not required).

    This request will assist us in the timings the metadata refresh to fit with our automated reports that run in LMS so the correct LCN is captured at the point of refresh. As it would be preferable for us to run these in the early hours scheduling would allow us to do…

  15. Add a 'provide feedback on this list' field for students to use

    It would be useful to help take reading lists to the next level to have a box where students can provide feedback on the list, which could be seen by library staff and academics. Constructive feedback might help academics to make improvements, e.g. this list is too long; there are discrepancies between what is on the Talis list and what is held elsewhere; this list is not sufficiently structured

    It would help us (as the library) know what to advocate with academics about!

  16. Warning when removing bookmark with digitisation attached

    Would it be possible for a user to be warned when they are removing a bookmark with a digitisation attached? Or for the Reading List team to receive a notification when someone has removed a bookmark that had a digitisation attached?
    We find that academics remove the bookmarks without telling us that the digitisation is no longer required (they seem to think that removing the bookmark terminates the digitisation) - the digitisation stays live in TADC but is no longer accessible via the list. At the moment the process of doing our monthly stats identifies when there is a discrepancy…

    With New List Edit the Delete warning is already much stronger, however, this specific request has come up in feedback and we plan to address this with clearer messaging about the impact on Digitisations. This is not currently scheduled but we will update as this moves to the top of our priorities.

  17. Include time periods filter in the Reviews screen

    For the purposes of prioritising reviews it would be very useful to have the ability to view and filter on list time periods in the Reviews screen alongside Stage, Status, Assigned, etc.

  18. All list report to include web address for chapters

    When you download an All List Items Report the web address for a Chapter only appears if the URL is in the chapter section not the book section of the bookmark.

    Would it be possible for the Web Address field to pull through any URLs from the bookmark as a whole instead of just looking at the Item type tab first?

    We quite often have eBooks on reading lists where the academic has specified a chapter to read. When they do this, the eBook is bookmarked and then the chapter added as 'has part...'. This keeps the URL in the…

  20. Reviews screen - move the Vendor information below previous review outcomes/decisions

    With several vendors now integrated into the Vendor section in the Review screen - and a lot of information in particular often coming from Askews & Holts - this section has now pushed the display of previous outcomes and comments for a given item off the bottom of the screen.

    This is unhelpful as library staff usually need to see previous outcomes/comments before deciding whether further purchasing is required - so in effect this information is in the wrong order.

    Could the vendor information please be moved below the outcomes/comments section?
