COinS - Context Objects in Spans

We now support sites that expose COinS metadata. These sites continue to work well with existing recognisers, but you may find you can bookmark successfully from a wider range of sites than listed here.

Best Practice

Where possible bookmark from an individual item view

The bookmarking extension is more likely to capture the individual Metadata from an item view rather than a search view showing many results. An item view is usually accessed by clicking the title, open or show for the resource you wish to bookmark. The exception to this is in Summon where you are able to bookmark from the search results by the way of a Bookmark to reading list ink, once you have clicked the extension.

How does bookmarking work?

We create a recogniser which based on URL recognition at the point of clicking the extension applies specific rules which identify and record the metadata on the screen.

  • For book items bookmarked in your catalogue or discovery system, Talis Aspire Reading List will use the id to search for the record in the catalogue and pull the data from the catalogue record.
  • If a book is bookmarked from another source and we can identify the ISBN, if this matches a record in your catalogue Talis Aspire Reading List will use the ISBN to search for the record in the catalogue and pull the data from the catalogue record.
  • If an article has a DOI we will refer to Crossref to pull in the full article and journal metadata for the item.
  • Where no identifier is found or matched we will use the information we have on the screen to create the metadata for the item.


Can I bookmark a PDF?

In short - your results may vary. PDFs do not allow us to automatically load our bookmarklet script. In many cases, this means that clicking the extension will have no effect. Some browsers show the PDF file in a 'fake' webpage which means that the extension may work for these - but it will not be able to extract any information from the PDF. You can manually bookmark a PDF by creating a new bookmark from within Talis Aspire Reading Lists, My Bookmarks and adding the link to the PDF in the web address field.

All I get is a webpage or incomplete metadata when I'm bookmarking a book or article, why is this the case?

This will be because either a bookmarking recogniser has not been created or the recogniser is no longer working on that website/catalogue page. From time to time existing bookmarking recogniser rules break as the website/catalogue page you are bookmarking from has changed in some way, so the data we are trying to extract may be in a new location or labelled differently on the website/catalogue page.

In either instance, if you have access to Talis Support, log a ticket at support.talis.com with the following information. If you don't have access to Talis Support please log this with your University Reading List team via the Feedback button on the reading list tenancy itself first, they will forward the detail to us. Please provide:

  • The web site you were having an issue with 
  • The precise URL of the item you were attempting to bookmark, by copying and pasting from your browser bar
  • What you were expecting to see
  • What actually happened

If sent via the Feedback button, the reading list team will then report that through to Talis to investigate and where possible create or amend the recogniser for the website/catalogue page, so that next time it is bookmarked the metadata will be complete.

    At two points in this article there is * and **.
    Any idea what they refer to?

    Thanks for flagging this. These referred to information that is now removed from the article. I've removed the * & ** to avoid further confusion.
