What can you tell me about the data in these reports?
Library Book Reports let you analyze print usage through your library catalog. Note that in order for these reports to generate information about print usage, libraries need to have uploaded their ILS files (including bibliographic, holdings, item, circulation, and acquisitions data).
The below reports include the following information:
- Report: The report name
- Data Source: Where the data is coming from. If the report includes multiple sources, the most pertinent source is listed
- Notes: Useful information about the report
To learn about using report features such as moving columns and saving customizations, see Using the Reports.
