Talis Product and Services Update - June 2019

Welcome to the June 2019 Talis Product and Services Update

Welcome to the June 2019 Talis Product and Services Update. This month we were delighted to complete the granting of access to New List Edit, all universities are now able to experience the new features that are available. We currently have 9 institutions already using New List Edit as the default for their tenancy, with may more expressing interest in changing over the coming months.

New List Edit - update

All universities have now been granted access to the New List Edit, have you tried using it yet? Features we think you will enjoy include the improved 'Add Resource', or cutting and pasting items on particularly long lists. If you would like to enable New List Edit as the default for your tenancy then please raise a support ticket so we can liaise with you about this process.

Are your students experiencing the New List View?

If not then we would encourage you to join over 80 universities now using the New List View interface with their students. Please raise a support ticket and we can talk to you about moving over.

CLA Digital Content Store (DCS) Integration

Talis Aspire allows universities to select their Choice of Clearance Solution, and alongside Talis Aspire Copyright Clearance we also now offer integration with the CLA DCS, allowing you to place digitisation requests directly from your reading lists. Details of how this works can be found in the following support articles, which also include a link to relevant DCS documentation:

If you are interested in making use of the DCS integration, please raise a support ticket.

Poster Sessions

At Talis Insight Europe we invited nominations for the Talis Aspire User Group (TAUG) Creativity Award. These submissions were turned into posters highlighting the journeys of different institutions with Talis Aspire, and have now been uploaded to our support site. You can view each of them here.

What has been released this month?

It's been a busy month for new releases. Some of the highlights include:

  • All users of the New List Edit can now use Quick Add in the 'Add Resource' functionality. As a reminder of how the new Quick Add works, here is a short video.
  • You can now assign List Owners in New List View and New List Edit. This change means there is no longer any need to navigate back to the Classic List View to carry out this action, do take a look at our updated support article.
  • You can now choose to hide the DOI Available Online link whilst still retaining the DOI as metadata; we also took the opportunity to improve the display of the DOI within the expanded item view. Further details are available here.
  • Talis Aspire DCS Integration users can now manually link to existing content in DCS for synchronisation - further details are here.
