The Library Loan Counts Dashboard is now available in Analytics. This dashboard will allow you to easily enter a date range to find loan counts by Item Policy, User Group, Material Type, or Library/Location.
Important note: While the total loan count of items migrated from Aleph to Alma, the historical information (when the loan occurred) did not. So if you are doing a date range search starting before 7/13/2021 you will need to get information from Alma starting at 7/13/2021 and anything before from Aleph. It would be a good idea to run needed reports from Aleph before Aleph is decommissioned in the summer.
To find this dashboard:
Alternatively, you can contact the help desk to have the Dashboard made available to staff in Alma by clicking Analytics --> and looking under Reports. Dashboards accessed this way are made available by role so you will need to let us know which role/roles you want to be be able to access it. For example, you may only want staff members with the "Circulation Desk Manager" role to be able to see this dashboard or you may want to also allow staff members with the "Circulation Desk Operator".
Below is what the Dashboard looks like. You can see that you should enter a date range at the top and optionally enter a Library. The report will have six columns.
If you scroll to the bottom of the report you can click the little blue up/down arrow to view more rows if your report is longer than 500 rows. You can also click Export to export the report to your choice of formats.
