Monthly Circ Stats Report

Evergreen v.2.2


The Monthly Circ Stats report provides monthly circulation data to be used for reporting monthly statistics to library boards. The report lists data for all PLS libraries, allowing libraries to compare amongst themselves.

NOTE: ILLs Sent and "In House Use" is included in the report, but the numbers are not included in the Total Circ number because this is not a metric used by NYS for the Annual Report.

Report Data

  • Name - Library
  • Checkouts - items checked out from library workstations
  • OPAC Renewals - renewals performed by patrons using the online catalog
  • Desk Renewals - renewals performed by library staff using the staff client
  • Non Cat Circ - Non-Cataloged Items checked out (these are different than Pre-Cataloged items)
  • ILLs Received - initial checkouts and renewals of items received from other libraries to fulfill hold requests

  • ILLs Sent - items sent out to fulfill hold requests
