Spring Training Save the Dates! Join Us Virtually this Spring for POWER Library Training! Sessions will be held May 10 - May 13.

This year's theme, POWERful Partnerships, will explore a variety ways libraries can partner with and utilize POWER Library to better serve their communities. And don't miss the "EDI In Action" Lunch & Learn Speaker Panel to hear about ways libraries are using programming to further equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Reminder: 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:
  1. Choose Profile on the side navigation bar in the Current Statistics module.
  2. Select the Edit Profile button.
  3. Choose the Yes button that appears under Email Monthly Reports.
