The ability to request digitisation of resources when they are given the resource type of 'document'.
Similar to idea 'Requesting digitisation of legal resource' but for documents more generally.18 votes
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).
It's important for us to be able to easily communicate with academics of their current digitisations and whether they would like them rolled over into the next period. Apart from a Bournemouth University issue with unit IDs changing every year which makes the rollover of digitisations essential it is vital that we maintain a communications link within the TADC module between library staff and the academic community engaged with TARL and TADC to preserve the integrity and relevance of content within reading lists12 votes
It would be useful to have an exceeded copy limit workflow stage added to TADC. We found that we have to keep a note of the local workflow stages outside of TADC for requests that exceed the copy limit. For these requests, we check if an e-book is available for purchase and if not, we contact the lecturer asking them to prioritise one chapter. Having a mechanism to monitor those steps in TADC would mean that all information relating to a given request is available in one place.8 votes
We have noted this piece of work and the advantage this would bring to your workflows. We will keep you updated as this is prioritised.
By default the requests are listed with the most recently submitted at the top. At this time of year when a lot of requests are coming in (but they are not required until September) we would prefer to work through them in the order they arrive (so start with request 1). We only went live this week but already I have to scroll to page 3 to find the earliest submitted request. Would it be possible to click on the column headings to change the order of the list?4 votes
We think the idea is valuable and it is in our longer term backlog for review, scoping and prioritising at a later date
I have noticed when academics/staff submit digitisations, you cannot see the priority of the chapter they want digitised - e.g. Core, Recommended or Additional. We try to only digitise items with a Core priority. This creates a loophole for us. We end up spending a lot of money on digitisation requests which we shouldn't be.1 vote
