Stockitem dusty items

Learn how to create and view the Stockitem dusty items report in Amlib.

Stockitem dusty items report

There are two main ways to do a dusty items report – in Stockitem Where and as a Stockitem Report.

There are several report templates to count Stockitem usage. The report templates are designed to show usage statistics displayed in a number of ways:

  • &STKTITL.QRP – stockitem title, author, call number, stats code and form
  • &STKHCC.QRP – history usage count in Call Number order giving details of each Stockitem
  • &STKHCSC.QRP – history usage count in Stats Code order giving details of each Stockitem

The last two reports are run against the Stockitem History. Users that delete data from the Stockitem History table need to be aware of the limitations of results.

Never Borrowed (via Stockitem Where)

  1. Launch the Amlib client
  2. Go to Main > StockItems > StockitemWhere – the Stockitem Where Search screen will display
  3. Enter the following Query Description:
    1. Times Borrowed < 1
    2. On Loan = N
    3. (optional) Location Perm =
    4. (optional) Form – for example: Form = DVD
    5. (optional) Sts Code – for example: Sts Code = FIC
  4. Click the F5 Query button to see a list of items
  5. Click the F6 Count button to see a count of items
  6. Click the F7 QtoFile button to save the list to a Saved File

Last Borrowed 12 Months Ago (via Stockitem Where)

  1. Go to Main > StockItems > StockitemWhere – the Stockitem Where Search screen will display
  2. Enter the following Query Description:
    1. Last Active <= Current Date – 12 months (via the Special button)*
    2. (optional) Location Perm =
    3. (optional) Form – for example: Form = DVD
    4. (optional) Sts Code – for example: Sts Code = FIC
  3. Click the F5 Query button to see a list of items
  4. Click the F6 Count button to see a count of items
  5. Click the F7 QtoFile button to save the list to a Saved File

*Using Last Active has limitations because an item may have been returned as part of a Stocktake (or other process) without necessarily being borrowed beforehand. If this is the case, then you might want to consider substituting the following for Last Active:

  1. Stk History Type IN ISSUE,RETURN (or Stk History Type = ISSUE if you just want to count when an item last went out)
  2. Stk History Date <= Current Date – 12 months (via the Special button)
