  1. Resource Type

    Make the drop down menu for "Resource Type" customizable.
    We have a lot of different resource types that lecturers want to bookmark, such as music score, law report, school resources.
    Some Law and Music lecturers are against using the system because of this.

    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.

  2. Move a number of bookmarks to a list all in one go

    It would be good if there was a way to move a number of bookmarks to a list all in one go, rather than having to add them individually.

  3. Manual entry - fields appear automatically according to resource type selected

    Would be helpful, when using manual add, if once you had selected the resource type, a standard set of entry fields could appear automatically, as appropriate to the type of resource, e.g. for article, 'author', 'page numbers', 'part of' & for journals, 'volume', 'date' etc.

  4. 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.

  5. Multiple holdings on one bookmark

    It would be really helpful if we could have multiple holdings, or LCNs against one bookmark.

    Here at RHUL we have a large literature collection, and where an academic has indicated the specific edition is not important, we have a situation whereby we have to have multiple bookmarks for the same title in order to accurately alert students to all the different copies that might be available.

    This ends up not only being time consuming to manage, but looks extremely messy on the list.

  6. Extend the Copy to my bookmarks function

    Enable academics to copy an entire list worth of bookmarks from an existing list to their bookmarks folder.
    Really useful where lists have been created by admin or library staff and then passed on to the academic to manage.

  7. Add a word to .RIS conversion feature to Talis

    Many of our academics comment that they would be more likely to use Talis if they could simply upload their word document and automatically populate a list in the same way they can with Endnote. There are online tools which convert word files into .RIS format. If Talis could develop this functionality it would go a long way in promoting the service to the academics.

  8. Rename Audio-visual document

    There are various requests for changes to theway Resource types are managed. Until these are resolved could we at least rename
    Audio-visual document to
    Audio-visual

  9. New editions displayed when bookmarking

    In reviews 2.0 and dashboard analytics there is an alert which shows that newer editions are available. Would it be possible to display this functionality to academics when they are bookmarking

  10. 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

  11. 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)

  13. Adding a bookmarked item to multiple lists

    It would be really useful to be able to add a bookmark to several lists at once. For example a new edition is being added to a list but they still need to keep the old edition as well, being able to add the bookmark to several lists at once (and publish the changes) would be wonderful.

    This was an idea someone else submitted back in 2014, but we've had requests from academics and also as part of some changes to our acquisitions processes that have meant i'd like it to be reconsidered.

    To be able to find and replace all instances across lists is something we are considering within our continuous improvements. We are keen to understand the importance of such a feature across the user group so encourage others to consider this idea and support if it is something that they feel strongly will have a positive impact.

  14. Deleting bookmarks

    If you create lots of lists, as library staff at Stirling do, then you create hundreds and in some cases thousands of bookmarks. We'd like to be able to bulk delete bookmarks which are no longer required. Currently you have to select per page of 25 and then remove from view from My Bookmarks This is very time consuming.

    We may be able to do this as part of planned enhancements to bookmarking

  15. An 'edit notes and importance' button to be added within the screen for an individual item

    Would it be possible for an 'edit notes and importance' button to be added within the screen for an individual item?
    We are finding that when we are reviewing and re-editing lists that often the individual item needs a note adding to it and we are unable to do this from within the item screen itself and have to open a different page or a new tab in order to enter the note required. I have attached a screenshot of the item screen - what we would like(if possible) is an 'edit notes and importance' button added next to the…

  16. The ability to add two sets of page numbers per entry because books often have the notes at the back of the volume.

    We would like to ability to add two different sets of page numbers on an entry.

    Often books will have their notes at the back and when we are scanning chapters and attaching to a bookmark entry we need to register the two different page ranges.

    Having all the info on the bookmark is vital for the students for referencing and also saves us time when doing CLA returns.

  17. In-line Box of Broadcast (BoB) materials

    BoB is a system that is going to be very important in the HE sector in the near future - either from the National BoB or locally implemented. Cambridge Imaging and BUFVC are the external partners to talk to on this.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
