This feature is complete but we are beta testing it with a small group of academics before making it generally available. This is so we can ensure the import is working for a wide range of situations.

    as an academic with no time to re-enter items from existing reading lists manually in Talis, I'd say the capacity to import data directly from all platforms from online library catalogues to Endnote to Google Scholar was crucial to its longterm viability

    Some of our academics have asked about exporting My Bookmark entries as citations so that they can use the bookmarked list not only for creating a reading list in Aspire but also for a course handbook as a word doc.

    Have had very positive reaction to the idea of delicious imports from acadmics in both IT & Criminology

    A RIS loader would be, for us, hugely helpful; and support for the RIS format would be much more important than any other. We'd prefer to see a RIS compatible loader go live sooner, with support for other formats to be added later.

    A lot of our academics have endnote libraries and at the moment they can copy and paste a list from their library to a word document in a referencing format of their choice. It could potentially save them time when they are initially setting up their bookmarks but not sure how you then make the links dynamic.
    It could also be useful if after bookmarking a new resource to Aspire the academic could easily add to EndNote or equivalent.

    I strongly agree that interaction with Endnote is very important.

    One of our customers over the summer is migrating lists from Endnote RIS files - therefore this will involve developing a good deal of the components required to ingest Endnote. It is our intention to enable the manual upload and import of Endnote files by users once we have got the tenancy-level import running smoothly for this customer.
