Talis Aspire logins improved

For those people who need to login to Talis Aspire our Reading Lists system, it has now been upgraded to use normal IT logins instead of the old 'classic Athens' details. Note that consulting the system normally does not require any login - you will only be asked to login if you want to add personal details to the system or if you have rights to edit lists

For those of you who have logged-in previously there is a one-time migration process to ensure that any details attached to your ID, such as lists which you can edit or personal comments, are made accessible from your IT login. On first login you will be prompted to enter your IT login details, then there will be a message box telling you about the changes and prompting you to login again with your old  'classic Athens' details. Once this information has been entered everything will be copied across and your details will be accessible. Future logins will only ask you for your normal IT login information.

Please let us know if you have any problems.

Unique camera donated to the Archives

Ernest Warrillow (1909-2000), press photographer for The Sentinel newspaper for over 50 years, gifted his private photographic collection of over 1800 negatives to the University in 1981. The Warrillow Collection depicts the changing landscape of North Staffordshire from the 1860s to the 1970s and we are thrilled that the camera used to take many of these photographs has now been donated to the Special Collections and Archives by Mr Alan Vickerman, Warrillow’s close friend and former colleague.
Warrillow made his unique camera from brass plate, just large enough to hold 9x12cm glass slides, and fitted it with a rare 100mm front cell focussing GB-Kershaw 630 lens. The camera comes complete with its original custom-made carrying case, with space to house a small tripod, flash gun and a dozen glass slides.
