Please see the information below regarding an upcoming webinar about ILL statistics available to Navigator (VDX) libraries. Anyone is welcome to attend, a registration link is provided:
OCLC Usage Stats provides comprehensive ILL data to OCLC members who use resource sharing products including WorldShare ILL, Tipasa, VDX and ILLiad. The data available through this resource allows you to understand your ILL operation in terms of number of borrows and loans, fill rate, your turn around time, what you lend and what you don’t lend, who you lend to, who you borrow from, who you might not want to borrow from, and IFM reports. You can leverage as much or as little of this data as appropriate for your institution.
Join us Wednesday, 21 June at 1:00 PM EDT to learn from library and OCLC experts about how to incorporate this data into your regular reporting processes. Libraries of all types and sizes are welcome to attend and should find some tips or approaches for using this data for reporting purposes or to streamline workflows. Sue Kaler from the Minuteman Library Network will discuss how she utilizes OCLC Usage Stats to inform her decisions and practices in ILL. Tony Melvyn product manager at OCLC will provide a detailed overview of the OCLC ILL Usage statistics including the powerful assessment tools. Please register to attend here.
If you have any questions you’d like to ask ahead of time or hope to see covered in the webinar, please submit them here: OCLC Usage Stats Questions. We will incorporate as many questions or suggested topics into the webinar as possible.
We look forward to seeing you at the webinar in June!
