Talis Prism 3 Update

The ability to run Talis Prism 3 in parallel with Talis Prism 2 means that we are seeing more and more customers choosing to soft launch Talis Prism 3 in a beta or parallel running phase. We have seen that usage of Talis Prism 3 is falling into one of three categories.

Beta – Where a customer has launched Prism 3 internally to staff and selected users to gather feedback which is then used to make improvements

Parallel – This is when Talis Prism 3 is run in parallel to Talis Prism 2 giving users the choice to trial the new catalogue. This is usually by placing a link on the existing Talis Prism 2 homepage to Talis Prism 3.

Live – This is when a customer has replaced Talis Prism 2 with Talis Prism 3 and this is their sole catalogue.

Below is a summary of customers who are using Talis Prism 3 in one of the above categories


University of Manchester


University of Sunderland
Leicestershire Libraries
University of Cumbria
Thames Valley University


University of Bolton
