As promised in my earlier update, here are the slides from the 2 customer presentations.
“Digitised Content” at London South Bank University: scaling up our scanning service
Speakers: Alison Chojna (Assistant Director) and Malcolm Palfreman (Team Leader: Acquisitions & Metadata)
The Library at LSBU regards Talis Aspire Digitised Content as a key tool for transforming our small, reactive, bespoke scanning service into a large-scale, proactive one. Until recently, we only scanned a hundred or so book chapters or journal articles per year – always in response to requests initiated by teaching staff. But, having implemented both Talis Aspire Reading Lists and Digitised Content, we have the opportunity to identify high-usage chapters and articles on reading lists ourselves and, proactively, scan them as a key way of increasing student satisfaction. The presentation examines our plans and progress so far.
University of Portsmouth : a journey – leaving out a terrible pun on the word Aspire- ational
Speakers: Annushka Donin (Library Digitisation and Scanning Service)
Annushka will discuss Portsmouth’s experience of Talis Aspire Digitised Content. Beginning with a brief look of their previous approach to digitisation and the challenges this presented, she will explore their journey through implementation, establishing the new service before looking forward to Portsmouth’s future plans.
