If you are using Talis Aspire, then you know that a lot of valuable data on the use of reading lists can be found within your tenancy, but how can you get hold of this data and make use of it?

You can already get real-time reports of data in Talis Aspire. Read this article on our support site to find out more about live reporting. There are six different reports available with a range of filters that allow you to see a variety of data, from hierarchies and library stock to resource usage, overview of users and reading list status. You can also get a real time view of the status of your reviews.

The webinar below, presented by Services Consultant at Talis, Laura Unwin, runs through how to access these reports, what filters are available and how this data can be used.

Do you need even more from your data?

Data about reading lists in Talis Aspire is just one piece of the university data landscape. Understanding how Talis Aspire data fits into the wider university context can help you find answers to the questions you are asking of your institutional data dashboards.

Watch the presentation from Talis Insight Europe 2017 below. Rachel Bramley, Learning and Teaching Support Librarian at the University of Sussex, explains how they were able to pull data from Talis and combine it with data from other systems, to create a more inciteful picture of data from across the library.


We have already worked with a number of universities to help them combine data available from Talis Aspire with other institutional data feeds to answer critical KPIs. We can help you too.
