    This idea is under review. We would be interested to know if you feel having information like this would cause confusion to students as to whether the library holds the items or not. If you do have feedback then please do add your comments as we would like to understand this more.

    My original motivations for raising this idea were:

    1) We'd had a very strong reaction against using Amazon links, from our academics. On the other hand, we felt that the other potential suppliers wouldn't necessarily have the same range (potentially leading to the situation described by Rachel below).

    2) Some of our undergraduate UX testers felt that the links implied that students *should* be buying books for their courses - which conflicted with a "no hidden costs" campaign that was being run by the Students' Union.

    WorldCat was suggested as a relatively neutral alternative.

    In the meantime, our situation has changed somewhat (!), and we are in the process of implementing OCLC's WMS as our library management system - so WorldCat will effectively be our discovery service, For this reason, we would probably be more likely just to switch the bookstore option off altogether than replacing it with a WorldCat link. However, I suspect that other institutions may still benefit from this idea.

    The requesting of documents is something Talis are working towards. Currently Talis Aspire Digitised Content only enables you to upload materials that require copyright clearance, but the Talis Player will not only enable you to upload material that needs to be copyright cleared, but also other materials.

    Talis have been working with beta partners to develop this, and we will keep you up to date with the wider release of this through the usual updates (webinars, newsletters, events etc).

    We would be interested to understand the use case for this, so what will enabling more exports allow the user to do that they can’t do today? Is that a benefit for library staff, academic or student. If you can update this idea with your thoughts and we can then review.

    Hi,

    I've obtained feedback from a couple of subject librarians at Bristol:

    1.
    Some schools in our Health Sciences faculty employ a large number of clinicians (doctors, vets, dentists) from the hospitals to teach on their courses by the hour, who they cannot expect to train in / update software like Talis (given their time commitments / grade), so they ask admin or Library staff to liaise with them and do this for them. They have asked us to send them the lists in Word format to update the content as they are all familiar with Microsoft tools and can use Track Changes to indicate where changes to the lists are needed. We then update the Talis lists for them.

    2.
    Some of our schools produce course handbooks, and they want to include exported reading lists from Talis in them.

    Best wishes,
    Rob

    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 would like to improve the ability to display as much info that we have about a resource even if it is not the specific format that was originally bookmarked.

    A redesign of how we display holdings would probably be required and this is not currently in our short term development focus.

    This idea so it has been moved to the longer term backlog. It will be merged with a similar existing idea.

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

    In addition to the scenario above (which is common at the University of Bristol) we also have large units with multiple individual tutor lists attached - many of which will include the same items to be made available a digitisations. In these cases, it would be very useful to have a simple way of placing the same TADC digitisation in several locations across multiple lists associated with the same unit code.

    Whilst the concierge checks the vault and copy limits on any requests received, there may be a need to check in advance of placing a request by digitisation staff, so improved searching is something we would like to address but is not currently in our near term development focus.

    It has been placed into moved to the longer term backlog.

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