How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Resource Type

Make the drop down menu for "Resource Type" customizable.
We have a lot of different resource types that lecturers want to bookmark, such as music score, law report, school resources.
Some Law and Music lecturers are against using the system because of this.

    We would like to add some additional resource types.

    However, this is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog.

    Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.

        We don't have any great need for the resource types to be customisable locally, however it would be good to have some additions to the list. I have recently had requests from departments for the additions: Dataset, Database, Newspaper.

        I'd like to add the resource "Extract". Academics ask for scanned readings that are not necessarily whole chapters.

        yes other resource types have been requested such as ebook, conference paper so whether customizable or extended standard list it would make it easier for staff to use.

        We would also like to customize our Resource Type menu. Right now there is nothing suitable for Book Series. Many thanks.
