Relocate the Google Preview Button

The new 'View Availability' button is currently overridden by the 'Google Preview' button. We believe that this may confuse students, and make them think that resources with the Google Preview button might not have items available in the library t...

Amend the VIEW AVAILABILITY button to PRINT AVAILABILITY

I am afraid the new VIEW AVAILABILITY is causing a lot of confusion with our students with multiple reports of broken links associated with print resources where this button is displayed. It’s too similar to the VIEW ONLINE button. I suggest it's ...

Ability to 'cut & paste' sections of a reading list into another reading list. I work on multiple programmes where my subject is one of several within a module, each of which has its own, specific reading list associated. With the current set-up, this means that my texts need to be painstakingly added to each. functionality that enables you to lift whole sections (or a link to all/part of another reading list) would save huge amounts of time each year.

Add OCR status of digitisations to the Advanced MIS data

It would be really useful to be able to run a report on digitisation requests where the PDF has not been OCRd. That information doesn't currently exist in Advanced MIS, but Consulting can run a custom report to generate a report.

Ebook cover images

We find the book cover images useful for new users in making the lists more attractive to the eye. These work fine when we are including physical books on the list, but as we are increasingly moving to an e-first policy the ISBN no longer has a co...

Report on deleted lists using Advanced MIS

Advanced MIS is supposed to enable us to report on anything and everything to do with Talis Aspire: items, lists, hierarchy, rollovers, and users, plus staff and end user interactions with the whole system. It seems a bit odd then that we're unabl...

Allow Systems Administrators to be able to un-archive single lists

We bulk archive lists every year, we do so based on the previous academic year at the start of the current academic year to avoid confusion for students and academics. However, occasionally academics come back and want that list to be active again...

Allow recently deleted lists to be retrieved in order to prevent permanent accidental deletions.

When culling reading lists, especially when deciding between two that have been created with the same/similar names, it is easy to delete the wrong one. It would be helpful to have a retrieval feature in which recently deleted lists could be resto...

Short URLs for sharing reading lists

At the moment Talis RL links are very long strings of alphanumerics. A shortened version to share more elegantly would look very nice. E.g. rl.talis.com/Institution/PSYC101 rather than https://rl.talis.com/3/institution/lists/AB01234C-0A2B-3C4D-DD...

'View as a list owner' functionality

Often, when we are introducing new academic staff to Talis Aspire or running refresher sessions for list owners just before the start of a semester, our colleagues point out that the menus they see in the system are not the same as those on screen...
