Alma Analytics enables you to run reports on library activities. You can use out-of-the-box reports that are provided by Ex Libris or you can create your own reports. Groups of reports can be displayed in dashboards that you customize. You can share reports and dashboards that you create with other Alma users in your institution or in other institutions. These reports help you understand the activities that your library performs, which allows you to make informed decisions on how to run the library.
