How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Adding a 'has part' facility - for book chapters and journal articles

A Liaison Librarian member of our Resource List project group is finding the management of book chapters (and by implication journal articles) through the Bookmarking tool vexing.

The scenario is this: a List Publisher wants to add an entry for a book chapter for a print book held in the library. Using the browser plug-in, they bookmark the book from the library catalogue, but in the Bookmark preview screen there is only the option to indicate that this item is 'Part of...' something else, whereas what the Publisher of the List wants to do is indicate that this item 'Has part...'. In other words, they want to grab the book record from the catalogue, and then supplement that by adding a 'Has part...' entry to reference the individual chapter that they want to highlight.

The same constraint operates where a List Publisher bookmarks a journal record from the library catalogue but then wants to indicate (using a 'Has part...' option) the specific journal article that they want to reference.
