Talis Aspire: course reading lists

Information to help academic staff create course reading material lists and manage copyright compliance.


Talis Aspire is the system used at Victoria University to create course reading lists and manage copyright compliance.

All courses must use Talis to create and manage readings that have been copied for course reading lists. Course Coordinators are responsible for ensuring their course complies with this requirement.

The benefits Talis provides are:

  • Create and manage reading lists of online and physical resources.Talis Aspire
