Allow List Publishers to see when a list was last reviewed

List Publishers cannot currently see the Review History of a list - they can only see the "Updated" data, which is often misleading for lecturers as "Updated" includes updates by Library staff, such as adding e-book links or updating editions. Thi...

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.

Currently when bookmarking from a journal, Talis includes the ISSN data without a dash after the first four digits. Library catalogues, publishers and journal sites display an ISSN in the format of 1234-5678 (including the dash) whereas Talis is d...

We have over 1800 pages of Reading List Reviews on our Review dashboard (back to 2017), and to make this more manageable and for our team of staff to be able to quickly identify which list they need to work on, it would be very useful to be able b...
