  • Some background on our digitisation service• Grew up in an ‘ad-hoc’ way through word of mouth• Used with enthusiasm by a limited number of academics, mostly in Education, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities• A well regarded, bespoke, almost personalised service• Requests made to a generic mailbox. We encouraged use of a request grid• Lots of contact between digitisation team and individual academics. Good open channels of communication• Work ordered and prioritised according to need-by date. This allowed flexibility for processing urgent requests, and spread the workload.• We delivered content via the VLE• We currently use PackTracker 407 February 2013

  • A single, seamless, integrated, monitored, workflow for the timely acquisition, review, creation, sourcing and delivery of all resource list materials in the most accessible and appropriate format for our students. LinkAcquisitions Digitisation Checking Optimise throughput time Easy access in most appropriate format‘One Touch’ process – single seamless workflow
  • But as digitisation became part of RLMS….. • Throughput time grew longer – targets missed • Requests submitted later • Lists ‘queuing’ in acquisitions Throughput • No standard request format meant missing times information • No ‘need by’ dates • Single point of contact proved to be a frustration Easy access • Digitised documents still accessed via VLE in the most • Legacy documents not represented on Aspire • No robust way of linking from Aspire to VLE appropriate • Students had to go outside Aspire to access texts format • Academics found Aspire confusing and frustrating Single for digitisation requests seamless • Loop backs between teams workflow • Digitisation record keeping more fragmented and difficult to maintain – lots of keying! 9 07 February 2013

How could weimprove it again? •Mandatory fields for bib data Better quality •Need by dates requests •Flagging where access was needed to a particular extract Requests to reach •Avoid queues •Digitisation requests submitted as soon as possible the team more •Digitisation requests submitted separately but still quickly within Aspire Discovery of •Way of linking to VLE?digitised resources •New storage/delivery solution for digitised textsdirectly from Aspire 1007 February 2013

  • Rollover! Concierge checks all documents List of exceptions presented for ‘sanity checking’ Emails to academics with full info and usage stats Content rolled over according to academic’s replies 1607 February 2013
  • • All texts accessed directly through Aspire • Academics can flag possible digitisation requests Easy, validated • Validation issues raised with access in the academics at time of request – most educating our users appropriate • Management of authentication format • More control of which texts are accessible at what times • Transformation of end of year rollover 1707 February 2013
  • • Academic requesting still within Aspire • Much easier request process for academics to manage • Workflows within dig team much simpler – less keying of data, only Single seamless one set of records to manage workflow • Many previously manual tasks automated • Another tool to help with copyright compliance • Transformation of end of year rollover 1807 February 2013
  • How will TADC help? • Allows requests to be made independently of the rest of the list • No queuing Throughput • Better quality request data Times • Need by dates! • More automation of checking saves time for staff • Less time keying in data 1907 February 2013
