Nine New Custom Reports

The OLIS is happy to announce that 9 new custom reports are now available:

Reports for cataloging cleanup:

    These services create a list of bib system numbers for bibliographic records that meet the criteria. Other Aleph reports/services can be used to refine and/or print results or perform global changes.

    Cataloging / Services / Custom Services – Cataloging
         * Bib records (non-deleted) with no ADM or HOL record (custom-35)
         * Bib records (non-deleted) with no HOL records (custom-36)
         * Bib records (non-deleted) with no ADM record (custom-37)

    Circulation / Services / Items
         * Item records not linked to any HOL record (custom-38)
Reports for OPAC Stats:

    These custom services replace the current web-based OPAC Stats created by Nathan Fixler at OLIS.  Starting with this announcement, campuses will use the new custom services for OPAC Stats and will no longer use the web-based stats that had been provided by OLIS. The Custom Services can report on OPAC activity from the beginning of v16.
    
    Cataloging / Services / Custom Services – OPAC Stats
         * OPAC Stats – Visits – Monthly (custom-60) — This service reports the total number of OPAC visits for each month within the specified year.
         * OPAC Stats – Visits – Daily (custom-61) — This service reports the total number of OPAC visits for each day within the specified month.
         * Web OPAC Search Strings – Word Searches (custom-62) — This service counts and reports the search strings used in Word searches within the specified period of time.
         * Web OPAC Search Strings – Scan Searches (custom-63) — This service counts and reports the search strings used in Scan/Browse searches within the specified period of time.
Job to provide circulation data for WorldCat Collection Analysis:

    Circulation / Services / Custom – Circ Reports and Jobs
         * WorldCat Collection Analysis – Circ Extract (custom-70) — This service produces a file to be sent to OCLC for the WorldCat Collection Analysis – Circulation Analysis. This file can be sent to OCLC without any further modification.

         NOTE:  This job will NOT produce usable results until after p_manage_70 is run for your campus.  The schedule is available on olisdocs:  http://www.sunyconnect.suny.edu/olisdocs/public/Aleph/p_manage_07_sched_Oct2008.xls

Enriching the z13 record, tab22 and running p_manage_07

Over the next few weeks, the OLIS will be enriching the z13 (short bib) record to include the OCLC number and the LDR from the bib record.  This will permit additional functionality for current and future projects.

New lines will be added to tab22 this week.  Beginning next week, p_manage_07 will be run in the 01 library of each campus (both /dev and /prod) to create the new z13 records.  It is expected that campuses will be down less than 30 minutes while p_manage_07 is running.

A schedule for running p_manage_07  is available in olisdocs at:

 http://www.sunyconnect.suny.edu/olisdocs/public/Aleph/p_manage_07_sched_Oct2008.xls

If you have any questions, please submit them via Footprints.

Thank you.
