Minerva Statistics

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.
