Getting statistics from Verso for your annual report

If your library uses Verso– not just the Norcat Libraries– here are some ways to get the statistics you need for the annual report to the state library

 

To find out your circulation statistics on Verso

 

  1. Log in and go to the Staff Menu
  2. Select Statistics
  3. Select Circulation Statistics
  4. Select Item Location (this gives children’s and adult statistics separately)
  5. From the drop down menu choose your library
  6. Run statistics by year then click 2015
  7. View in HTML
  8. Add the totals from Checkout and renew for your total circulation.  DO NOT count the Checkin column

 

To see how many items were added to and deleted from the collection

 

  1. Log in and go to the Staff Menu
  2. Select Statistics
  3. Select Circulation Statistics
  4. Select Item Activity
  5. Select your library
  6. Enter a start date of 01/01/2015
  7. Enter an end date of 12/31/2015

 

You can also get the information on material added to and total size of the collection this way

  1. Log in and go to the Staff Menu
  2. Select Statistics
  3. Select Database Statistics
  4. Select Locations Collections
  5. Enter a start date of 01/01/2015
  6. Enter an end date of 12/31/2015

If you do not enter the start and end date, you get the numbers for your entire collection on the day you run the report.
