Minerva’s statistical reporting tools are powerful, but sometimes confusing. In addition, they do not exactly match the ways in which Minerva operates, particularly with respect to online requesting and lending. As a result, some background information is needed to understand which tool to use and how to use it for various purposes.
Web Management Reports (website)
Web Management Reports (http://minerva.maine.edu/manage) reports primarily circulation statistics, including interlibrary lending and borrowing statistics. Just point your browser at http://minerva.maine.edu/manage/. You can find more information in the online manual.
Directions on obtaining key circulation activity statistics can be found at http://www.maineinfonet.org/supportportal/statistics/
Sierra Statistics (in the staff module)
The Statistics functionality focuses on collection statistics. If the Statistics function is not visible in your function menu, please submit a ticket to have it enabled for your username. You can find more information regarding the Statistics function in the online manual.
Lending transactions specifically through the MaineCat Inn-Reach system are reported on the MaineCat statistical site.
