Alexandria offers a wide variety of cool reports. But... while it's awesome there are so many, we know it can feel overwhelming at times. This is why we've put together a list of specific reports you may want to check out!
Some reports may have improved since the last time you set them up, so be sure to go through your current saved reports.
Weeding List. Get an overall view of your collection to decide what needs to be weeded. Note that this report includes all copies. Use selections to narrow the report to one status, one call number range, or one policy at a time.
Brief Analysis. See the number of titles/copies, total purchase/replacement cost, and average purchase/replacement cost for selected items.
Super Summary. View a quick valuation of your collection. In particular, give the Regular - Ignore Super Summary Call Numbers format a try.
Unused Barcodes. If you're ordering from a vendor, run this report to ensure certain barcode ranges are free to use and/or to print labels for that unused range.
Titles with No Cover Art. See which ones need cover art added.
Titles with No Copies. See which titles need copies added.
Usage by Period. See checkouts, check-ins, renewals, and hold requests for a particular date range. This is a great report to run at the end of the year! Try out the By Month of the Year format sorted by Entire Range, in particular.
Patrons with No Email. Make sure all of your patrons will receive notices by ensuring no one is missing an email address.
