Usage Statistics Can Be Sent To You Monthly
Taking a look at your usage statistics once a month is a good way to spot potential problems. For instance if you forgot to tell us about an IP change, there would be an unusual increase in remote usage and a drop in in-library usage. Working together we can usually figure out the source of a problem and fix it.

POWER Library participants can have their e-resource usage statistics sent to them on a monthly basis. To set up email reports, choose Profile on the side navigation bar in the Current Statistics module and then click the Edit Profile button. Choose the Yes button that appears under Email Monthly Reports.

Links to the usage statistics modules and both video and PDF documentation are available in the POWER Library For Librarians.

Show Me How to Get My Reports Monthly!

Access Pennsylvania Training Webinar Recordings
You can view recordings of both of the required webinars at your convenience. After viewing both videos, contact us to request that your SHAREit account be enabled. Include your library's name in the email subject line and message.

We regret that we cannot issue continuing education credits for viewing the recordings.
