Murdoch University Presentation - Talis Aspire User Group February 2015

  1. Talis Aspire at Murdoch University Helen Bronleigh Talis Aspire Project Manager
  2. Background • Current model: • eReserve: Repository for all digitized text- based copyright materials required for student course work • Unit reserve list: items in Reserve or eReserve • LMS reading list: all other material, may include links to Reserve and eReserve.
  3. Problems • Students have multiple reading lists with limited integration • Out-dated management system for Reserve and eReserve • Manual process for checking copyright compliance • Manual submission of requests • Limited options for sorting or grouping readings • Time consuming and complex for academic staff and library staff
  4. Requirements We want a system which provides:
 • Easy way for academic staff to create and manage their own reading lists • Easier management of copyright compliance • Improved experience for students and academic staff.
  5. Talis Aspire project status • Approval to purchase Talis Aspire Reading Lists and Digitised Content in late October 2014 • Base tenancy setup and configuration completed December 2014 • Going live with a pilot group of academic staff for Semester One 2015
  6. Approach • Get academic staff involved in creating reading lists from the start. • Create reading lists from scratch – no bulk import • Subject librarians to be the primary avenue of support
  7. The Pilot • Targeted 2 academics from each school = 16 • 11 current participants covering most schools • Difficulties of recruiting at end of year just prior to Christmas shutdown. Some not available in January. • Expectation: At least one unit from each academic for Semester One 2015
  8. Training • 2 days on site training • Half day training for academic staff • Subject librarians involved in training academics – one on one support.
  9. Lessons and issues • Metadata is a mystery to many • Bookmarking from Summon doesn’t always work • Keep teaching time periods broad • Digitised Content workflows
  10. Objectives for 2015 • Integrate Reading Lists with Moodle • Original goal: roll out to all units for Semester 2 2015. Too optimistic!!! • Now: All first year units live for Semester 2, with full implementation for Semester 1 2016
  11. Next challenge Achieving University wide adoption of Talis Aspire
