Checking your statistics

I've gotten a couple of questions lately about checking your statistics for Listen Up! Vermont. I encourage everyone to take the Reports training (look for info in the next few days about upcoming training dates for both Reports and Digital Library 101) -- there is an incredible amount of information available about your patron's usage of Listen Up! -- but in the meantime, here are the steps to find out your monthly circulation.

  1. Go to http://www.contentreserve.com/ using Internet Explorer.
  2. Click on "Login." If you do not have your login and password, please contact Stephanie Chase at schase[at]stowelibrary.org. Please save your login information in a safe, accessible place.
  3. Click on "Reports."
  4. Click on the fifth report title down, View Activity Charts.
  5. Choose "Checkouts by Month" in chart type
  6. Make sure "Maximum Access Subscription and Owned" is chosen in the title type
  7. Choose your Library's name (it's alphabetical by library name, not town) in the branch field
  8. Choose all formats in the Format field
  9. Use 1/1/08 as a start date, and today's date as the end date
  10. Click on ok
You will now see a bar graph with your monthly circulation. If you click on the month and year to the far left in the graph, you can see a list of the titles your patrons downloaded.
