Maximum number of datasets you can create Unlimited Varies. Your subscription will limit you to a certain number of datasets (contact our Sales Team to increase your limit).
Types of datasets you can create You can create both specialized and custom datasets. Specialized datasets provide you with analytics tailored to certain types of data, such as e-resources, circulation, acquisitions, gate counts, finances, reference transactions, and more. You can only create custom datasets. These will allow you to run general anayltics on your data, including field analyses, time-based analyses, distributions, and cross-tab reports.

The E-Resources/COUNTER 5, E-Journals/Databases (COUNTER 4) and eBooks (COUNTER 4) datasets both support a range of COUNTER reports, allowing you to upload and analyze your e-resources data. You can even connect to a growing number of SUSHI providers to import your data directly from your vendor. No, custom datasets do not support these types of data.
Share datasets with other LibInsight users for collaborative data collection Yes, the Shared dataset allows you to create and share datasets with other libraries using LibInsight. You can even contribute to the ACRL Statistics dataset, which is automatically shared with every LibInsight library. No, Shared datasets are not available.
