Academics from the University of Birmingham share their thoughts on Talis Aspire

Academic perspective

We spoke to academics at the University of Birmingham to hear what they thought of Talis Aspire Reading Lists and Digitised Content. Watch the videos with Dr Nathan Cardon, Lecturer in United States History and Dr Lee Gregory, Lecturer in Social Policy below.

Dr Lee Gregory started using Talis Aspire Reading Lists after attending a training session and quickly discovered the benefits. What he feels is useful¬†is the ability to ‘bookmark’ a whole range of resources to his list – not just books and articles, but online resources too, which could not have been available before on a paper list. Hear more about how his students benefit from online reading lists below:

Watch the video below to find out how the library implemented Reading Lists and his first thoughts:
