June 17, 2020.The University of Tasmania in Australia has adopted Talis Aspire. Reading lists and copyright clearance will be implemented with Talis Aspire to improve the student experience and encourage more engagement with collections. Enhanced analytics capabilities will be utilised with the Talis Aspire Advanced Management Information System to provide a deeper insight into learner analytics.
Having implemented over 100 universities, Talis are is familiar with integrating a diverse range of Library Management systems and Learning Management Systems. Talis Aspire will be integrated with the Library Management System, Innovative: Millennium and with the Learning Management System, D2L by Brightspace.
The Talis Services Team is already working closely with the University of Tasmania to kick off the implementation project and will continue to support them closely, to ensure they are getting the most out of Talis Aspire. They plan to roll-out a student pilot this July.
Wendy Hoyle, Associate Director Library Services and Janette Burke, University Librarian said "The initial implementation meeting with Talis occurred shortly after the contract was signed. The meeting clearly outlined the tasks required for a successful implementation and despite our very tight timeframe for implementation, we left the meeting feeling Talis understood our requirements and could deliver the system within our timeframe."
David Errington, CEO at Talis said "We are pleased to welcome UTAS to the Talis Aspire community. We look forward to working closely with them to help achieve their goals around student experience and enabling them to provide a more streamlined service for their library staff and to support the library as central to the wider institution. We are enthusiastic to help UTAS get the most from being a part of an engaged community of 100+ institutions across the globe."
