I’ve received a few emails in the last few weeks from library staff who need a refresher on accessing their library’s statistics on the Overdrive Marketplace. I’ve decided to post something here and make things easier for us all. Below are step-by-step instructions for accessing your library’s user and checkout numbers.
Reports for specific libraries can be accessed through:
Insights > User Statistics > Unique User Activity
- Select Unique users by ‘Month’.
- Select your library from the ‘Branches’ list.
- Identify a Start and End date.
- Click View Report. It may take a few moment to load.
Your results page will identify the total number of users with checkouts by month.
Under the Month column of your results, if you select a specific month another results page will open with the details of how many checkouts occurred in that month – you’ll notice that the total is in the top row of the table itself, in brackets.
Good luck with those yearly reports!
