1st June 2007, Birmingham, UK. Talis Source is a simple resource sharing and inter-library loan service. Since May 2006, Talis Source has become a truly diverse Union Catalogue for Higher Education, Further Education and Public libraries. Already, many IS Oxford Heritage users have joined the Talis Source community including Sarum College, Edinburgh Telford College and Bridgwater College.
Talis offers two levels of access to Talis Source. Free resource discovery is available to contributing libraries and full interlending capability costs £500 per institution, per year. In recent months, Talis has welcomed a number of new libraries to the Talis Source Community, some of which are successfully using Talis Source in conjunction with their IS Oxford Heritage LMS.
Jenny Monds, College Librarian, Sarum College commented "Talis Source has proven to be invaluable. Having access to a Union Catalogue with so many holdings and so many contacts in one place is brilliant. Talis Source is simple and quick to use."
This comment is reinforced by Malcolm Crombie, Learning Resource Centre Team Leader, Edinburgh Telford College, who commented "Talis Source proves to be great value for our needs. We looked at other alternatives but found they are far too expensive for our requirements."
