To assist COPPUL member libraries with reporting lending activity to other COPPUL members a new report is available.
This report displays the number of requests received from COPPUL members and is broken down into copies, loans, and unfilled. Following is a sample.
The report is based on the Statistics by Library Symbol but it includes an extra element that selects only libraries where Stats Category #1 = COPPUL LIBRARIES in library records.
Counted in the report
The COPPUL report includes all requests submitted by each COPPUL member along with the number completed. Some of the requests submitted during the time period may not be completed during the time period of the report equally it is possible that some of the requests completed were not submitted in the time period of the report. The completed requests are split into two columns: canceled and filled. The filled requests are split into two columns: copies and loans.
