A number of users of Talis Decisions have mentioned that it would be helpful to have some examples of typical reports: not so much because one-size-fits-all, but more as a source of ideas and approaches that are helpful when writing library-specific reports.
We have therefore this week published a document containing a number of sample reports describing:
- What the reports look like
- How they might be used
- How they were written
As the document itself makes clear “.. [the document] is neither a complete tutorial nor a guide to library management. It is intended to stimulate ideas about how to use the core universes to extract information that will be useful in the management of the library.”
We would be very interested in any feedback on the usefulness of this. As ever, please add a comment to this blog, respond via LIS TALIS or e-mail me directly.
