  1. Bookmarking on iPads

    Our academic staff are all being given iPads at the start of the 2018/19 session and will be encouraged to use these as much as possible

    It would be really great if a bookmarking tool could be developed for Safari on iPads (or possibly even a list management app?!?) so that we could give our academic engagement a real boost.

    • Links to Worldcat in item view - instead of a bookstore

      We'd like to have the option of replacing the bookstore in the item view with a link to Worldcat.

      At the moment, several bookstore options exist (see: https://support.talis.com/hc/en-us/articles/209262049-What-bookstores-are-supported-in-the-item-view-). However, in response to feedback from our academics, we would like to see the possibility of linking to a vendor-neutral external catalogue instead.

      • Add a request digitisation button in the review screen

        Could there be a 'request digitisation button' in the review process so that they could be requested as you go?

        • Show review history in lists post rollover and in Reviews 2.0

          At present when lists are rolled over to a new time period or copied manually the 'review history' (in the list review drop down menu) does not rollover- it resets as a new list. Nor is this review history available to view in Reviews 2.0, only the previous review comments and/or alerts attached to bookmarks.

          The review history information (dates requested/completed/by whom) is very useful to view as part of the workflow and we would like to see the review history details rollover with lists year on year and also appear in Reviews 2.0 detail screen.

          Thanks

          • Emphasising fonts

            Display of font

            It would be great if there was an option to italicise/display in bold data entered into the Student Notes section (or anywhere on the list really). The font would still be consistent for the institution but this would allow greater ability for list creators to add emphasis where required.

            • Ability to delete comments made in error

              It is annoying that you can't delete a comment that is made in error on the review stage - or be able to edit a comment after it has been made

                • Making library review outcome comments visable in CSV

                  We would like to communicate list review outcomes not only to the owner of a list but to our Acquisitions team too, who would rather receive our purchase requests in Excel sheets. So, exporting the outcome to an Excel sheet is quite useful here. But the only problem is Last comment under Review Outcome (in which we plan to convey our requests to our Acquisitions team, such as number of copies to purchase, e-books or print, etc) does not appear when the review is exported to Excel.

                  • tick box to allow us to change the priority of multiple items.

                    We often have lecturers wanting to change the priority from Core to Recommended. The ability to select specific multiple items and change them in one go would be VERY helpful.

                        • Display of tutor notes

                          Would it be possible to improve/increase the flexibility of the formatting of the tutor notes field? It is difficult to make the presentation of the Student Notes Field look good with it often looking quite cluttered if you want to raise a number of different points, or list a number of different chapters, within a note. It isn't, for example, possible to put these on separate lines.

                          • Removal of duplicates from bibliography

                            When you view list as bibliography it duplicates references where there are multiple bookmarks for the same item. It would be good to remove these duplicates so that if necessary academics can quickly produce a bibliography if necessary without having to edit it.

                              At the moment, if academics want an item to be put on short loan they write this request in the library note field. Is it possible to have a tick box for academics to select items for short loan?

                              • Enhance the LTI tools to grant access to lists

                                Extend the LTI integration so that an academic can click through from a module in their learning management system (Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, etc) to Aspire and be granted appropriate access to the list in Aspire. This would be a much more effective way to grant academics List Publisher access to their lists than the clumsy email invitation system.

                                This functionality is available in other systems such as Echo360 Lecture Capture so it has the additional advantage of being familiar to academics who are already using this.

                                  • Include edition field in item reports

                                    The all items report includes most of the metadata that belongs to an item, but does not include the edition statement. Doing so would make it possible to see at a glance what items are added to lists and how they are formatted - identify edition statements in words, for example, which have implications for reference formatting. The editions functionality in reviews does something different, and does not allow you to create reports like this. Given how few fields there are in item records, we should be able to report on all of them.

                                    • reviews 2.0 overview summary line similar to TADC

                                      Would it be possible to have a line at the top of the reviews page with a summary similar to TADC of 'Requested' 'Started' 'Assigned to You' or to default the display to these statuses to help workflow?

                                      • Automatic email to an Academic when a review is requested

                                        Following feedback from one of our academics, regarding a lack of response from the system when a review is requested. I would like to suggest that an automated message, acknowledging when they have requested a review should be built into the system.
                                        It would be a good idea for each Library to be able to configure their own standard message, e.g. thanking them for submitting a review so that they have a record of when the review was submitted.
                                        Ideally we would like to add information about how they publish their lists and attach information as to how they attach…

                                        • Anchoring the Edit function

                                          Is there a way to 'anchor' as it were the links at the top of electronic reading lists, in a similar way to how you can freeze panes within a spreadsheet so that you can still view column headings as you scroll down a long spreadsheet?

                                          I'm talking specifically about 'freezing' the 'Edit' button (and presumably the other buttons next to them like 'Recent Changes', 'View Bibliography' etc) so that we can easily toggle between the student view and the editing view, or publish a list after checking a link without scrolling up and down lists that are often very…
