Library News: Talis Award for Excellence in Marketing and Engaging Academics; How Web of Science and Scopus can support your research

Talis Award for Excellence in Marketing and Engaging Academics

Library Services were the proud winners in the annual Talis awards, winning the prize for Excellence in Marketing and Engaging Academics and being highly commended is the Creativity Award. Here’s what the judging panel said:

“This award is for a dedication to academic adoption, shown impressive and creative methods and a well-executed plan. It’s clear that students and Academics are at the core of what the University of Worcester do. After Talis Insight Europe 2017, Allie Taylor’s presentation made waves in the community, with many other Talis Aspire users replicating the approach. The University of Worcester have also embraced LTI and section linking so that academics really can teach the modules in the way they designed. The library team were a part of the early beta phase for the new Student List View, and were quick to gather focus group feedback to support Talis Aspire in the development of the list view.”

“The University of Worcester showed a very holistic approach to advocacy. They seem to have begun and inspired a number of trends in advocacy in other universities, such as embedding a reading list session as part of the Postgraduate Certificate in Education qualification for academic staff.

The video they created certainly fits the bill as creative and the Talis Aspire User Group representatives loved the Lego copyright police and “one list to rule them all.”
