Leeds Trinity University ​have ​selected Talis ​Aspire ​to ​manage ​and ​deliver ​its ​online ​reading ​lists ​service and copyright management.

With Talis Aspire, Leeds Trinity University Library ​aims ​to standardise their approach to reading lists. In achieving this they will provide an ​improved ​student ​experience and better access to resources. ​They will also streamline library workflows, with better capability to manage library acquisitions and improved reporting functionality.

Nick Goodfellow, Director of Library & Learning Resources at Leeds Trinity University said that “Leeds Trinity University was looking to implement a resource list management system, as a means of making the student reading experience more seamless and engaging, and our management of resource acquisition workflows more streamlined. Having gone through a tender process, we were impressed by Talis’s clear commitment to developing and enhancing their solution, with new initiatives such as the Talis Player, by evidence of ease of integration with our Moodle VLE, and by the sophisticated analytics functionality that will enable academic staff to determine which resources their students are engaging with.”

​Leeds Trinity University ​plan ​to ​integrate ​reading ​lists ​with ​their ​Virtual ​Learning Environment ​(VLE) Moodle ​through ​the ​Talis ​Aspire ​Learning ​Tools ​Interoperability (LTI) ​tool. ​

Talis ​Aspire ​will ​also ​be ​integrated ​with ​Leeds Trinity University’s ​Library Management System INFOR V-Smart and their Discovery Tool, EBSCO. ​This ​will ​provide ​a ​seamless way ​to ​add ​resources ​to ​reading ​lists, ​and ​provide ​direct ​links ​to ​these ​resources ​for their ​students, ​including ​real-time ​library ​holding ​information ​and ​single ​sign-on ​access where ​relevant.

“We are pleased to welcome Leeds Trinity University to the Talis Aspire community, joining 96 others worldwide. We look forward to supporting them in their goal to improve their reading list solution for students. The Talis Team will work closely with them through their implementation and beyond to help them achieve this.” ​said David ​Errington, ​CEO ​of ​Talis.
