Resource type list - allow customisation

We would like to add 'Databases" to the resource type list. I have seen other users would like to add other resources types. Why not allow users to add resource types to the list that work for their organisation?

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...

Note For Library - see reporter + get alert when note has been added to reading list

We don't currently assign list owners to reading lists, so can't see who has added a Note for Library. It would also be helpful to have (optional) ability to turn on functionality to send alert when Note to Library has been added.

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...

Bulk delete lists

We should be able to bulk delete lits. Our archived lists are mounting up and after a few more years there will be even more!

Back-up copies of previous versions of lists

A new member of academic staff recently deleted several sections and numerous resources from two reading lists by accident. There is currently no way of reverting to the previous versions of these lists, as Talis does not keep any back-ups. We can...

Customized cover images

Possibility to upload cover images for List items. Right now only a few resources will generate cover images in the list (mainly paper books), we would like to have an option to upload images. This would be a lot more visually attractive for stude...

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.

★ Enable individual sections on lists to be hidden/visible only to staff

Many of our users would like the ability to make individual sections 'staff view only' aka 'not visible to students' even when the list is published. Hidden sections could be indicated by the standard 'eye-icon' that most users are familiar with. ...

★ Make the 'Unpublished changes!' warning bar float as you scroll down a list

Unfortunately our users tend to miss the 'Unpublished changes!' yellow warning bar. If it floated as you scrolled down the list (like the 'Back to top' button and Table of Contents/Filters do), it would be more visible and obvious to users.
