University of West London: Reflecting on 6 years with Talis Aspire

We spoke to Edyta Krol, Academic Support Librarian at the University of West London (UWL) to find out about their journey with Talis Aspire. Although the story begins with challenges, the team’s hard work now means they boast a 98% list coverage across all modules. In this post, we reflect back over the last few years and look forward to the plans for the future.

Implementation was completed in just 4 weeks, however getting Talis Aspire off the ground proved difficult for the UWL team in the first few years.
