Statistics: E-Reserves

In this article

E-Reserves courses report

With the Courses report, you can analyze the total number of views by course over time. You can pull stats for a single course, or all courses with the option to filter by term. By drilling down to a single course, you can see the total number of views for each of its items.

For this report, a view is counted whenever someone loads a course page (including things like page refreshes). Please note that this may not necessarily equal the total number of views for items in a course, as someone could view multiple items without leaving the course page.


To run a report:

  1. Go to Statistics from the command bar.
  2. Click on the E-Reserves tab.
  3. Use the Course dropdown to select your scope:
    • Select "All Courses" to view stats for every course.
    • Or, you can choose to view stats for a single course in the list.
