How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Expand list of academic disciplines and/or make the list customizable

Expand list of academic disciplines and/or make the list customizable.

We have received a request to add Built Environment to the list as there is no equivalent discipline available

Talis Aspire Reading Lists (TARL) – Profile screen in Talis Aspire Reading Lists no longer asks for ‘Main Discipline’, this was based on feedback, that it didn’t cover enough variation or localisation on subjects. As it wasn’t mandatory, no meaningful trends could be gleamed from the data available so we decided this was no longer adding value and have therefore removed. We will keep an open watch on this to see the feedback that we get from this being removed.

    Agreed - being able to customise the list of disciplines would be really beneficial and would help with advocacy with academic staff

    Yes, I think this is definitely something that is needed - i get asked about it often when training academic staff to use their lists and there isn't a suitable alternative for subjects that fall into the Built Environment category, e.g. Architecture, Quantity Surveying, etc. It would be a very welcome addition.
