Abstract: BPP University has selected to implement both Talis Aspire Reading Lists and Talis Aspire Digitised Content to support their strategy to deliver all information resources to their students online at the point of need.


BPP University has selected to implement both Talis Aspire Reading Lists and Talis Aspire Digitised Content to support their strategy to deliver all information resources to their students online at the point of need.

Jude Wilson, Head of Library and Information Services at BPP University says, "Our collection development policy supports an active teaching collection which means our students are able to access all of the information resources they will need to progress in their studies through BPP's library service. We operate a digital first policy and are keen to ensure that wherever possible information resources are available to our students online at the point of need."

"We have adopted Talis to support the delivery of this strategy. The link between Talis Aspire Reading Lists and the library acquisitions function will ensure we can continue to meet the commitments we have made through our collection development policy as our schools and programmes develop. The digitisation module will help us to make better use of the The CLA Higher Education Licence. Most importantly integration with our library systems means students are directed to where they can access resources whether in hardcopy or online from a single platform."

"We have been impressed with the services Talis provide and look forward to working with them more closely on future projects."

BPP University are the 70th university in the UK to implement Talis.

Talis help 87 universities in eight countries, including over 50% of all UK universities, to manage and deliver learning resources online. The cloud based SaaS system hosts nearly 500,000 reading lists, with over 20 million references, serving in excess of 176 million views of reading lists by students each year.
