That sounds like a great way to look at the Symphony transaction logs, and I'm
going to try it. Thanks! Having all these logs will a great way to learn these
Thanks for all the other replies about the logs. People are analyzing them in
different ways with different tools, and everyone finds something right for
them. That's always good to see. I'll write up what I do in case it's useful.
A general question for anyone looking at usage of circulating physical items:
what have you found to be the most useful questions you ask of the data, or the
most worthwhile reports and visualizations you make? I'm going to start with
some obvious ones (what circs the most, what kind of user is most active, which
locations are busiest, what call number ranges get used the most) but I wonder
what others have found to be the most interesting and helpful.
