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
- Most popular resources

Borrower usage reports
- Most frequent borrowers
- Least frequent borrowers.

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.
Which Oliver reports can I use for our student academic reports?
There are several useful Oliver loan statistical reports and the two guides below offer several criteria
- How to run a report on borrower usage by roll class – Borrower usage by roll class reports students by roll class, in alphabetical order showing a total number of loans in a specified period. Students with no loans in the specified period will not appear on the report.
- Overview of most frequent borrower report – Most frequent borrowers lists students in each roll class in order from most frequent to least, with the number of loans in a specified period listed. Recommended to print this by individual roll class. Students with no loans in the specified period will not appear on the report.
