What type of usage reports can be generated?

Libraries commonly want to report on the usage of their collection. Oliver offers a range of statistical reports on Resource and Borrower usage. Helpful reports include:

Resource usage reports

The guide, Overview of borrower and resource usage with search criteria reports, provides an overview of usage reports available.

Just a reminder, the data included in reports comes from the data migrated from OASIS. Usually, this was the data history from the previous two calendar years before migration.

How do I print a report of borrower usage?

At the end of each term, primary school teachers often want a list of the count or a list of the titles of books that have been borrowed by each student in their class for the term.

These guides describe how to print a count of loans for each borrower by roll class or a list of the titles.
