Build custom reports and visualizations that meet your specific library needs.
Make data-driven decisions
WorldShare Report Designer enables you to draw on your library's data to build custom reports and visualizations that meet your specific library needs. Using your data, you can quickly prepare a variety of custom reports in a visually compelling way that demonstrate your library's strengths, illustrate why your services are so valuable, and show how you’re spending your budget. Report Designer also can help you to make better data-driven decisions.
Report Designer is available to libraries with WorldShare Management Services (WMS) and/or Tipasa subscriptions. Please note, Tipasa is only available in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
- If you use WMS, it draws on all your library's data and enables you to build a wide range of reports. You can use these reports to support decisions to subscribe or unsubscribe from certain databases, for example, or to determine whether to transition from print to electronic resources.
- If you use Tipasa, you can build reports to highlight your library’s resource sharing activities, determine your most requested titles, review your consortial borrowing and lending activities, and many more.
Additional analytics solutions
Tools and services to help your library manage, share, archive or remove monographs to transform valuable library space. GreenGlass is a purpose-built, interactive application that allows you to explore your print collection.
A tool to compare your library collections to those of another library, a peer group or a benchmark library group to analyze the strength of your discipline-specific resources and to support decisions about what to buy, license or borrow.
WorldShare Management Services, OCLC’s cloud-based library services platform, includes a range of reports based on your library's local data. Acquisition, cataloging/collection, circulation, and e-resources reports provide important data so librarians, staff and library management can understand library activities and track key metrics over time.
Spot trends and track key performance indicators
WorldShare Report Designer allows you to create new reports, charts and visualizations or use existing reports as a base for customization. You have the flexibility to adjust the data you present and how it's presented. You can easily see trends and understand how well your institution is tracking against your key performance indicators.
Satisfy your reporting requirements
You can use the reports, charts, and visualizations you create in WorldShare Report Designer to satisfy library, academic, and agency reporting requirements. With the outputs, you can help others “see” data and trends so they better understand the information and can put it in a library or business context.
