Analytics at OCLCGoal: support the library community in decision-making activity, using transactional and cooperative dataNew framework enables a comprehensive suite of analytics and decision-making tools using library data. The priorities for the offering will be two-fold:To provide a set of tools that enable authorized library staff members to access and manipulate library data, both local and cooperative, in support of local decision-making; andTo aggregate and expose pre-processed library data, both local and cooperative, for consumption via the WorldShare Platform.First Step: Collection EvaluationTask-oriented interfaces help libraries put data in context easier to useDeselection/basic shared print: Spring 2013Benchmarking: May 2013Group support: November 2013Web service to offer machine access to pre-processed comparison data: May 201310 libraries participating in a pilot beginning in February
The teal pie chart represents my librarys holdings in the selected subject area. Since we havent applied any additional criteria, the whole chart is teal, representing 947 titles.The vertical chart on the right shows the distribution of holdings across the other libraries in my comparison.
Limiting by publication date shows me that 91.2% of my librarys holdings were published before 2005.
Finally, I want to limit to titles in my collection that are also held by more than 2 libraries. This represents a much smaller portion of my collection the titles that I want to consider for deselection.The May release will introduce additional filters, including options to incorporate usage information (e.g., exclude items that have circd more than 5 times from the candidate list.)
I can export details about the titles including location and call number to create a picklist for pulling items from the shelf.Or Identify Infrequently-Held Titles for Contribution to Shared Print Programs
