Talis Aspire Digital Content Store Integration - Overview


Talis Aspire allows universities to select their choice of Clearance Solution, and alongside Talis Aspire Copyright Clearance (also known as TADC) we also offer integration with the CLA Digital Content Store (DCS). This article takes you through the different support articles Talis has in place for the Talis Aspire DCS integration to guide you how this works. Please contact your Account Manager for a quote if you are interested in using the Talis Aspire DCS Integration.

This will save you having to find and edit every item on every list which links to the Digital Content Store (DCS).

Frequently asked questions

Q - Is it possible to customise the message list publishers receive when a request is sent for fulfilment? 

A - this is not a feature available in the integration, the messaging simply updates the requester that the request has been sent to the Digital Content Store and is awaiting fulfilment.

Q - Is there an automated email to list publishers when digitisation goes live?

A - a notification email does not get sent, direct messaging to the requester is available within DCS, as DCS is where the decision is made about the clearance of the request and the request is processed to go live. Once an item is requested Talis Aspire is only receiving its latest status from DCS each time the synchronisation between the two systems occurs.

Q - Is it possible to make the 'needed by' date mandatory when the form is completed? 

A - this is not a feature available in the integration, the needed by date is within the form but is not a mandatory or customisable field.
