Example of generating a report 


Overview report

The Overview report breaks down the number of borrowing and lending requests submitted by month and request type (article and loan).


ILL Details report

The ILL Details report breaks down your data by status (cancelled, filled, and in process) and request type (articles and loans) for borrowing and lending. The totals for each status are used to calculate the total number of requests submitted.


Cancellations report

If you have created categories for Cancelled Requests, the Cancellations report will break down the total number of requests cancelled by category for borrowing and lending. This report takes into consideration the total number of cancelled requests (e.g. requests with a status of Cancelled for borrowing and lending), giving you an overall percentage of total requests that each category represents. 


Partner Institutions report

If you have created categories for Partner Institutions, the Partner Institutions report will break down the total number of requests filled by category for borrowing and lending. This report takes into consideration the total number of filled requests (e.g. requests with a status of Filled for borrowing and lending), giving you an overall percentage of total requests that each category represents.
