Expand the TADC vault to all TADC institutions
As TADC cannot re-use the content of the DCS, TALIS should investigate the possibility that the vault content could be opened out to all TADC institutions, as allowed by the CLA’s TPTP licence. This would be a huge boon to both small and large TADC users, as it would reduce duplication, and allow for improved workflows.
We’re excited to announce the release of a much-anticipated feature for UK and Ireland users of Talis Aspire Copyright Clearance – A shared vault.
Having already helped a number of universities with individual requests via support, we are now in a position to enable you to access the shared vault for yourselves.
The shared vault is currently only available for institutions in UK (CLA) and Ireland (ICLA) and contains scans that have been uploaded from institutions using these Reproduction Rights Organisations (RROs). This is in line with copyright requirements for these regions.
When a request progresses to copy pending, Talis Aspire automatically searches for a match in the UK and Ireland shared vault, allowing you to review and preview the matching scans and select whether to attach a matching scan to your request.
Full details and step by step instructions on this feature can be found in the following article:
Shared vault in Talis Aspire (https://support.talis.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010663878)
For existing requests in Copy pending, in order to push them through the Shared vault check, please ‘Edit & resubmit’ from the actions menu.
The product team is investigating replicating this functionality for other regions, in line with the RROs in use in Talis Aspire today. We will work to keep you informed of progress – to keep up to date with this, please join our regular product update webinars.
Any issues or questions when using the new functionality please do raise a support case.
I agree with all of the other comments: we are in uncharted territory and I think this knowledge sharing would varsity benefit the remote teaching and learning currently being undertaken
Caroline Deakin commented
Yes please, this would put our students first
Much needed when we have moved to online teaching and need to provide more resources for remote studying.
Support the previous comments. This would be a massive assistance to my teams, at a time when they are struggling with so many things
Clair Sharpe commented
I agree with previous comments. Anything we can offer to support our students and academic communities during this difficult time will be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Agreed, couldn't come at more appropriate time to help support digitisation services using TADC.
This would be a considerable help to institutions that are currently locked to staff and students, where all teaching and learning has moved online.
Alex Fenlon commented
In the current circumstances this would be extremely valuable for our institution and our students.
Great idea and legal too!
It would be a very supportive move at this difficult time. Many e-resource providers are already making their resources freely available to students for the rest of the academic year.

This would really help the students. Great idea
Really good idea.
Catherine Riches commented
What a great idea, please do implement this. It could be another example of a good community-spirited thing resulting from this tough situation.
Patricia Rogers commented
Come on, Talis, please. We are waiting.
Catherine Phillpotts commented
This would really help us out in this difficult time! Please can we have access?
Michael Stringer commented
This would be very helpful in this time of the Covid-19 crisis where we are relying on remote learning.
K. Beveridge commented
now that the corona virus has closed academic libraries for an unknown time, & the BL document supply service is under pressure as well, and prioritising NHS request, it would be helpful if the sharing option in the CLA licence, clause 4.1.4 were implemented (so we can see if other libraries have scanned the same material). The DCS also offers a similar option, so it would be helpful if there were parity between the 2 systems.
