Welcome to Alma Analytics

Welcome to the Alma Analytics Resource Guide. The purpose of this guide is to provide library staff with access to essential supplemental documents, presentations, links, and information about our consortial Analytics environment, etc.

Alma Analytics is an add-on tool that extends the basic reporting functions in Alma. Analytics is accessed directly via Alma for both Alma and Primo VE. Alma Analytics and Primo Analytics are two instances of the same platform. Analytics is built on Oracle Analytics Server (OAS) and uses Structured Query Language (SQL) to extract data and compile reports and analyses.

Many "reports" are available as the results of basic or advanced searches in Alma itself, but Analytics provides searching and analysis at a deeper or more complex level.
