Laura Ritchie, National Teaching Fellow at the University of Chichester named her presentation “Skeptic to Champion” and she discussed how, as an academic, she went from her first meeting with Talis asking ‘what’s the point’ to seeing the value. Watch her presentation below:




One of the sessions asked ‘What is a Business Process Review?’ This session focused on the question of what a BPR is, and how it can benefit you as a university. The session was embedded with real experience from Sian Blake, Digitisation Librarian from the University of East Anglia who talked through their recent review and the outcomes from the session. Rachael Johnson, Digital Resources Librarian and Wayne Morris, Database Manager from the University of South Wales discussed why they wanted a BPR and what they felt they gained from it. Laura Unwin, Support Consultant at Talis, also gave some information on what we offer and what you can gain from the session. Watch the presentations here:

Erin was joined by Sara Westh, who shared her experience as a student using resource lists. Watch their presentation below:
