What can I do with an ILL dataset?

In this article

The ILL dataset allows you to record and analyze your aggregate interlibrary loan data. 

  • Analyze your total borrowing and lending volume by day, month, or year.
  • See the ratio of article requests vs. loan requests.
  • Break down your requests by status and reason for cancelation.
  • You can also track borrowing and lending with partner institutions, which is great if you need to compile stats for regional or consortial groups.

With the cross dataset analysis tool, you can easily compare your ILL borrowing against your circulation and electronic resource usage to see how your patrons are accessing library resources. These datasets are also handy if you create a dashboard tracking all of your access services data.
