We make it simple to create and manage resource lists that integrate fully with your current systems. At the same time, we provide powerful library back-office functionality, including easy, efficient and compliant digitisation services. Talis Aspire often forms a part of wider university strategies in areas such as Learning & Teaching and engagement analytics.
Your reading lists are readily embedded in Learning Management Systems such as Moodle, Blackboard and Canvas. They are also integrated with your library catalogues, discovery services, student registry, link resolvers, SAML authentication, citation tools and bookstores.
The bookmarklet tool reduces time required to manually enter resource descriptions by harvesting resource metadata automatically. Students will also benefit from edition checking, as our high quality data sets with the combined power of the Talis Aspire community guides them to the most appropriate edition.
Talis Aspire helps you understand clearly how students use your reading lists and resources, helping you to make more informed resourcing decisions. With our copyright management solution, you will gain an insight into the actual student use of your scans too. The Talis Aspire Reading List dashboard gives academics a unique way to perform regular list health checks. As a result, they'll be able to better understand and support students.
The growing international Talis Aspire community helps us shape our service. By joining this community, you’ll benefit from all the collective experience of your peers. We make sure best practice is shared amongst all users, by putting on regular events.
Our copyright management solution gives academics and library staff instant compliance decisions they can trust. Our academic digitised content request form has auto-complete fields, which can be embedded and used on most institutional systems. Decisions on whether copyright permission can be obtained are made instantly. Submitted requests are checked against the relevant copyright regulations in your region, the library and other relevant data and services.
Students can access Digitised Content easily and securely from most devices, from anywhere, at any time. By allowing them to use their mobiles, tablets and desktops you’ll help improve their student experience further. This can be embedded in most university systems, such as the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and your resource lists.
The Talis Services Team are always there to help. They will be on hand throughout your Talis Aspire journey, from implementation and beyond, to ensure you are getting the most out of Talis Aspire at every point.
