The library at Northumbria University and Talis have worked in partnership to develop next-generation library analytics for student success. In this blog post, Nick Woolley, Former Director of Student and Library Services, and from August this year Director of Library Services at Sheffield Hallam University, explains how Northumbria University worked with Talis over the past 6 years to improve the student experience. Find out more about their projects, including the latest undertaking, Advanced Management Information System (MIS).

Bishop Grosseteste University implemented Talis Aspire in August 2018. During the first year, the team focused on a small number of courses (English, Maths, Counselling, PGCE Primary, History) and early adopter academics to establish workflows and introduce Talis Aspire. A year after implementation, the library team are moving into Talis Aspire as business as usual.

The University of West England, Bristol (UWE) has adopted Talis Elevate in the Department of Education and Childhood. In this blog post, we discuss with Susan Hughes (Associate Head of Department of Education (Education Engagement)), and Tim Sanderson (Senior Learning Technologist) about their approach to adoption and rollout of Talis Elevate.

Thank you to Judith Keene, University Librarian at the University of Worcester for contributing to this post. The University of Worcester have been working on specific issues with student satisfaction over the last couple of years, having identified gaps in reading lists as a potential reason for a negative student experience. They implemented Talis Aspire and with the hard work of the library teams, have seen their student satisfaction scores increase year on year.

We spoke to Edyta Krol, Academic Support Librarian at the University of West London (UWL) to find out about their journey with Talis Aspire. Although the story begins with challenges, the team’s hard work now means they boast a 98% list coverage across all modules. In this post, we reflect back over the last few years and look forward to the plans for the future.

During one of our routine Services calls with Harper Adams University, Matt Bryan, librarian was explaining about the progress made with academic engagement following a session he ran, inspired by Allie Taylor’s Insight Europe 2017 presentation and the implementation of Talis Aspire’s Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) integration.
