Resource type list - allow customisation

We would like to add 'Databases" to the resource type list. I have seen other users would like to add other resources types. Why not allow users to add resource types to the list that work for their organisation?

Ebook cover images

We find the book cover images useful for new users in making the lists more attractive to the eye. These work fine when we are including physical books on the list, but as we are increasingly moving to an e-first policy the ISBN no longer has a co...

Make it an option for 'Quick Add' function to only search 'My bookmarks'

Currently our 'Quick Add' enables users to add resources by searching by title, author, or ISBN-13, as well as My Bookmarks/recently added. We do not encourage our users to add new resources this way as they often struggle to find exactly what the...

Create reading list via Word import

It is currently possible to generate a reading list from a RIS file. It would be good if this could be created from other files, such as Word documents. Module supervisors will often compile a reading list within a word document when submitting ne...

★ Enable individual sections on lists to be hidden/visible only to staff

Many of our users would like the ability to make individual sections 'staff view only' aka 'not visible to students' even when the list is published. Hidden sections could be indicated by the standard 'eye-icon' that most users are familiar with. ...

Back-up copies of previous versions of lists

A new member of academic staff recently deleted several sections and numerous resources from two reading lists by accident. There is currently no way of reverting to the previous versions of these lists, as Talis does not keep any back-ups. We can...

Ability to collapse sections on a list

We have had a request from an academic with a large list for the ability to set the sections on their list to be collapsed by default. This will allow the user to quickly scroll to the relevant section then open it to see their readings. (Also, ca...

Customized cover images

Possibility to upload cover images for List items. Right now only a few resources will generate cover images in the list (mainly paper books), we would like to have an option to upload images. This would be a lot more visually attractive for stude...

Ability to 'cut & paste' sections of a reading list into another reading list. I work on multiple programmes where my subject is one of several within a module, each of which has its own, specific reading list associated. With the current set-up, this means that my texts need to be painstakingly added to each. functionality that enables you to lift whole sections (or a link to all/part of another reading list) would save huge amounts of time each year.
