The University of Tasmania was announced runner up to the Talis University of the Year Award. Talis is a reading list platform that has been implemented in 107 universities globally, predominately in Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, and the USA.
This was a well-deserved Award by the Library and Academic staff who have engaged so readily in the new reading list platform. Already our data is showing that for the number of lists created the student interaction is high and is exceeding some established Talis reading list users – a real credit to the team. The Library will be participating in an international benchmarking pilot with Talis in the future.
We acknowledge the palawa/pakana and Gadigal people, the traditional custodians of the land upon which we live and work. We honour their enduring culture and knowledges as vital to the self-determination, wellbeing and resilience of their communities, and to shaping a just, inclusive and equitable Australian society.
