(22 June 2016) Queensland University of Technology has selected Talis Aspire to manage and deliver their online reading lists and copyright-cleared content services.
The online reading lists system was rolled out to academics for training in May, and will be rolling out to students in July at the start of the second semester. Students will benefit from seamless access to their reading lists directly from BlackBoard, their Learning Management System, through the Talis Aspire Learning Technology Interoperability (LTI) integration.
Talis Aspire will enable QUT to easily connect reading lists with content from the university repository, Summon and library subscribed databases. Access is achieved via the AAF shibboleth authentication method. It will also enable more efficient copyright compliance and reporting as required by licence from Copyright Agency Limited (CAL).
QUT has over 45,000 students, including more than 6,000 studying from overseas, with an annual budget of more than AUD 800 million. For more information about QUT please visit https://www.qut.edu.au/about .

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.
