    Analytics Evidence BRSA1 - Missing Field Detail in Borrowing Requests SA

    Created By: Igelu-Eluna Analytics
    Created on: 3/19/2019

    Resource sharing request details are missing from the Borrowing Requests SA -- volume, issue, start page, end page, [number of] pages, chapter number, chapter author, chapter title, doi, source, series title number, Borrowing Requests Details > material type (there is a material type field in the Bibliographic Details section in Borrowing; in Lending, this field appears in both details sections).

    Use Cases:

    [1] Users need to know what journals are being borrowed from other libraries in order to make appropriate purchasing decisions.

    [2] Pages is needed for reported of work volume.  A 3-page scan is not the same as a 50-page scan.  

    [3] Pages is needed for calculating fees charged to partners.

    Mapping Notes:

    Alma Fields Analytics Fields
    Journal title Borrowing Request Details > Journal Title [NOTE!  It is NOT part of the bibliographic details]

    Ex Libris Response:

    The missing field list will be updated and this will be reviewed at a future meeting.

    An Idea Exchange is recommended.
