Paul Stainthorp - University of Lincoln - Talis Aspire Digitised Content Workshop

  1. 1. University of Lincoln Talis Aspire Digitised Content - Workshop Paul Stainthorp - 5th March 2014
  2. 2. Hello Paul Stainthorp Electronic Resources Librarian University of Lincoln pstainthorp@lincoln.ac.uk
  3. 3. Old method of digitisation ● ● ● ● ● Blackboard VLE Content Store eReserves - Very time consuming process - No record of decisions / © details - Whole process re-done every. single. year - One eReserves folder per module: multiple copies of files not shared between modules ● - No reporting - manual CLA returns ● + Seamless authentication within Blackboard
  4. 4. digitisation.library.lincoln.ac.uk ● TA Reading Lists launched July 2012 ● 18 months on: 42% of modules have lists ● Integrated with Blackboard VLE & academic programmes management system (APMS) ● Justification: + Student experience, - Academic Subject Librarian effort ● TADC launched July 2013
  5. 5. Conversion ● Didn’t use Talis’s automatic conversion from spreadsheet / filestore (process not ready) ● Exported Blackboard eReserves to disk and worked through priority modules (2 batches) ● - Time-consuming, but not really ● + Learnt a lot about TADC in the process ● + “Clean sheet”: fix mistakes, discarded lots ● + More new reading lists created
  6. 6. Authentication ● New auth system OpenAthens LA launched the same month as TADC - don’t do this! ● - No devolved constraints: self-certification ● - Worried about profile creation stage ● - No seamless sign-on between Blackboard and OALA/TADC: user has to log in twice
  7. 7. After 6 months... ● ● ● ● ● 1,200 live digitised files 293 modules with digitisation 42,900 views (12,300 downloads) (1,800 prints)
  8. 8. What next ● Review & improve TADC+TARL processes ● Currently digitisation requests still mediated by Academic Subject Librarians - change? ● TARL hierarchy - better integration with programmes management system ● Authentication - devolved constraints
  9. 9. Any questions? Paul Stainthorp Electronic Resources Librarian University of Lincoln pstainthorp@lincoln.ac.uk
