  1. Bookmarking on iPads

    Our academic staff are all being given iPads at the start of the 2018/19 session and will be encouraged to use these as much as possible

    It would be really great if a bookmarking tool could be developed for Safari on iPads (or possibly even a list management app?!?) so that we could give our academic engagement a real boost.

    We are working on bookmarking functionality alongside our List Edit improvements, this will reduce the reliance on the bookmarklet feature and enable more resources to be accessible in the List Edit context. When this feature is released, we will revisit this idea to understand if it still has relevance.

  2. Automatically bookmark videos as "Online Resources"

    During our pilot phase, we've noticed that when academics add YouTube or BoB videos to their lists, they generally forget to tick the "Online Resource" box - possibly because they are used to it happening automatically when they bookmark, e.g., articles and ebooks.

    It would be useful if online videos could be automatically recognised as "Online Resources" by the bookmarking tool.

    At present this does not happen because "audio-visual document" resource type can include, e.g., DVDs listed on a Library catalogue (not an online resource). However, could there not be a workaround similar to the one for ebooks (see: http://support.talis.com/hc/en-us/articles/205644351-How-the-Online-Resource-button-works)

  3. Improvement of resource type

    Some academics suggest to add 'Standard' (it is used as a resource type especially in the major of Science and Engineering) and 'Conference paper' in the item resource type

  4. Creating a bookmark and adding item (direct) to a list

    When creating a bookmark and adding item (direct) to a list, enabling either ‘search’ function for the list or list them alphabetically or by most recently used. If you have many lists it can be hard and time-consuming to locate your list.

  5. Importing RIS files into existing lists

    We would like to be able to import bookmarks created from RIS into existing lists rather than just new lists

  6. Bookmarking from PubMed and using PMID

    Our Bioscientists would like you to improve bookmarking from PubMed and to be able to use the pub med id pmid number like DOI.

    PMID can be used like DOI to retrieve citation information for an article. Both 360 link and SFX openurl resolvers can create a link and a citation using a PMID. Could you please consider adding this functionality to Talis Aspire

    This idea has been moved to the archive forum.It is something we would like to investigate further but is a lower priority than other items at the moment. We will review this again when looking at bookmarking improvements.

  7. Add publication date in bookmarks list

    Year of publication is not displayed in the list of bookmarks. This is particularly important to academics as units often use various editions of the text book and need to be able to differentiate between the editions. Is it possible to add a column for Year of Publication in the bookmarks list?

    Related to this, in My Lists, the date of publication needs to display in the bookmarks in the right column, to easily differentiate between editions when adding bookmarks to lists.

  8. Differentiation between Chapters and Extracts in Reading lists to enhance integration with TADC requests

    We use Chapter/books in reading lists, then when digitisations are requested it is assumed they are complete chapters when we might only want a small section. or sections of the book. We would like the option to add extracts/sections here. At present we can only add one page range and we would also need multiple page ranges to be added
    . When we then request a digitisation, the correct section rather than complete chapter would be selected thereby hopefully lessening the number of referrals needed in TADC.

  10. Copying bookmarks

    This suggestion relates to an extension of the facility to copy over bookmarks, as it would be usful to have the option to copy over the notes (associated with any bookmark), in addition to its importance level.

  11. QuickAddBookmark sequence prompts to Create/Create and add to list

    QuickAddBookmark is good but would be great if, rather than just creating a bookmark, it prompts to Create/Create and add to list.

    At the moment, staff need to remember to add the bookmark to their list after creating the bookmark. If they drag & drop, they may forget to Set Importance which messes with our acquisitions workflow.

    With Create/Create and add to list buttons at the end of the sequence, it would be instinctive to choose the list, set the importance, add notes to student/library etc. as required.

  12. Improvements to 'Create and Add to List'

    Sometimes when you bookmark a resource, the 'Create and Add to List' function doesn't capture the resource you expect it to. This seems to be a particular problem where the same ISBN appears in more than one record, e.g. an e-book record that contains the ISBN of the print version - invariably, the print version is bookmarked even when the e-book version is displayed in Aspire ready to 'Create and Add to List'. It also happens in some reprinted monograph records where the ISBN of the original is included.
