This report gives bibliographic data and week-by-week circulation for a "single title," which is defined as a single "ISBN cluster" within the selected aggregate. Clusters are based on Catalog IDs with shared ISBNs.
There are a number of ways to create these reports:
Setting up a Report
The default setting for Aggregate is All Libraries. The Quick Picks section shows recommended aggregates based on the ones you commonly use. To choose a different aggregate, click the Add/Edit Aggregate button to open a menu. Note that for the Week by Week report, you can only select one aggregate.
From there, you can filter aggregates based on: type, province, population density, population served, budget, tier, and branch focus. You can also search for specific aggregates by name or from a list.
The default setting for Reporting Period is Current Week. Select a different period by choosing from the drop-down menu in the basic view. For more advanced options, select Custom or click on the calendars below.
The default display for Custom Period is the most recent week. To select a different time period, click on the date boxes or calendar icons below to enter the starting and ending date of the reporting period.
This textbox allows you to search for a single ISBN.
ISBN Report Error
If any of the ISBNs you have entered are not valid, you will receive an error report as seen below. To run a successful report, delete or fix the ISBN as advised by the message.
Multiple ISBNs Error
If more than one ISBN has been entered into the textbox, you will receive an error report as seen below. To run a successful report, delete all but one of the ISBNs.
