Book supplier integration with Talis Aspire Reviews

A key part of reviewing lists in Talis Aspire Reading Lists is being able to order the stock that is required for that years reading. We have worked to integrate the universities main book suppliers into the reviews screen so that you can easily link out to the book suppliers and place your orders.

What book suppliers can be used?

  • AbeBooks
  • Askews and Holts Library Service*
  • Browns Books For Students 
  • Proquest Coutts OASIS
  • Dawsonenter
  • OttoEditions

How does the integration work?

When conducting a library review of a list, you will see a link to look at the price in your supplier. This is a widget that inserts a link allowing the user to lookup any resources with an ISBN in the book suppliers interface.

The widget constructs a link to the book supplier. On clicking the link, a new browser window will open. If you are not already logged in, the supplier will ask you to log in via a popup window. Once logged in, the supplier will search for a record using the first ISBN present on the resource.

How do I turn these on?

If you would like any of the suppliers to be added to your reviews setup please raise a support ticket identifying the ones you would like to use.
