The Process

  • Log in to Talis Aspire DMU Resource List, then go to your list and choose the Edit list option
  • Click Edit list or Edit list (classic) 
  • In edit mode, against each entry you have the option to select “Request digitisation”: select this if you wish to digitise a chapter or article. 
  • Your request will then be checked by Talis Aspire for:
    • Whether the publisher is mandated by the Copyright Licensing Agency

    • Whether it is within licence limits, therefore one chapter or 5 percent, or one article from a journal part.

    • Whether we hold the publication in our library holdings.

Talis Aspire will notify you either that the request is successful or referred within seconds of submitting the request.

If it is successful, then the request is processed by the Digitisation Team and the scanned material will be linked to your reading list entry.

If it is referred, then it will still go to the Digitisation Team, who will carry further checks and respond back to you.
