Starting March 18, meeting will take place weekly at 10am EST

Plans for this working group

Nassib suggests these focus areas for the working group this week...

• Working through the data specification for the Circulation Item Detail report. It's probably close to being ready, but I think it should be actively vetted by this group. Then it can be used to guide the database/software development.

• Planning an update for the next Reporting SIG meeting to provide an update/demo/discussion on this group's activities so far

Please take a look at the documentation for API data elements from the eUsage app development team.

eUsage API data elements documentation:

  • for eUsage, we do not actually save the single data fields of each report, but the monthly reports as a whole, with metadata to identify them

eUsage UI presentation:
The eUsage UI design includes a statistics previews backend that queries specific reports (identified by provider, date range, metric type etc.) and then processes the full report

Here is a presentation explaining this design with an example:
