How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Author entries on bookmarks

When author details are brought in from catalogue or other source the format is surname, first name. However when you manually add this information to a bookmark the order is first name, surname. This results in author entries being inconsistent when viewed in a list and could confuse students when they are citing an item

We made some changes to ensure that when bookmarking they are put into the relevant fields which do display as first name, surname. However, Author names are displayed in format Surname, First name on the list and in the bookmark. The only instance where this does not occur is where we have not been able to match the resource in the catalogue and we bring in the format taken from the source site.
