 Talis Insight Europe 2017

As always, what you share with each other adds so much value to the two days, resources to turn to time and time again. Check out Talis Aspire User Group Submissions for inspiration.

 Here are some around academic engagement and growing services, with us gearing up to the a new academic year in Europe and Semester 2 in Asia-Pacific

Proquest Support for HTTPS

Customers are reporting that Proquest are moving from http to https across all platforms. See the following article: ProQuest Support for HTTPS

We believe from further responses direct to customers that http links will redirect to https so not requiring any link updating - but we encourage you to check these links, and report any issues.

 Releases of interest

Stay up to date with our releases by regularly visiting our Product Update page where you can view all release information including all improvements or fixes released in Talis Aspire.  This site is available from the top navigation bar on the Talis Support site.  Releases that you may be particularly interested in are:

  • Talis Aspire Digitised Content (TADC) - If you have enabled the functionality to allow an academic to upload their own copy of the scan into TADC, the academic will now have to enter the page numbers before the scan can be accepted.
  • Talis Aspire Digitised Content (TADC) - The CLA advises that if a title is clearly published in the USA, licensees should use Check Permissions in conjunction with the list of International Mandating Publishers (IMPs) on their International Territories page. If it is published in the USA andthe publisher does not appear on the list of IMPs, then it is a CCC Electronic Rights work.  We have made some changes to TADC to reflect this advice. More details

 Community Contributions

Our Community Contributions continue to grow. We cover a wide spectrum of topics from a time saving top-tips to making the most of Google Analytics. If you have something you wish to share with others then please let us know by raising a support ticket.

Newly added this month:

Integrating digitisation with the acquisitions workflow (webinar)

Talis Aspire Digitised Content (TADC) provides a streamlined way to request, and process digitised readings and link them into your reading lists.  In this webinar, Dorothy Atherton from Nottingham Trent University explains how they successfully use both TARL and TADC to support their internal workflows.
