    Digital Usage

    Using the Digital Usage subject area, you can create reports and dashboards relating to digital usage and answer the following types of business questions:
    • How many times was the digital representation viewed?
    • How many times was the digital representation shared?
    • How many times was the digital representation access denied?
    • How many and which of the digital files were downloaded?
    • How many and which of the digital files were viewed?

    Digital Usage – Field Descriptions

    Digital Usage Measures

    The Digital Usage Measures table is a fact table that stores all measures relating to digital usage, such as number of digital representation views and number of digital file views.
    The number of digital representation views may be greater than the number of digital file views if the representation has an access rights policy that requires the patron to acknowledge a copyright statement. If the patron does not accept the copyright statement, it counts as a representation view but not as a file view.
    Digital Usage Measures
    Field Description Additional Information

    Bibliographic Details

    The Bibliographic Details table is a dimension table that stores the bibliographic details of the digital usage. The primary key of the table is MMS_ID.
    The field descriptions can be found in the Bibliographic Details shared dimension.

    Ex Libris works with content providers worldwide to enrich the metadata available in the Alma Community Zone. To enrich the journal/serial content in the CZ, we work directly with the Library of Congress CONSER feed for electronic serials, which we match against our knowledge base to enrich with all of the relevant metadata fields that they supply (for more details, see Community Zone Serial Records Enrichment). We receive weekly updates from CONSER and enrich the CZ records with all relevant metadata, including the 050 fields (when available).

     

    In the case of book content, we work with multiple providers who are willing to share their metadata with the Alma community globally (for more details, see Community Zone Monograph Records Enrichment). If you have local access to these classifications, you may want to consider working with the local extension for these records whenever an update is not available. (For more details, see Working with Local Extension Fields for Community Zone-linked Records)

    Linked to CZ Indicates if the record is linked to the Community Zone
    Linked to NZ Indicates if the record is linked to the Network Zone
    Local Param 1-10 This field allows you to enrich the bibliographic and holdings information exported to Analytics with additional information from MARC fields in Alma."
    In order to make use of this field, you must contact Ex Libris Support and supply them with a three-digit MARC field code (for example, 901). (The field does not need to include a 9.)
    The fields can be number and code fields but not control fields. Therefore, the field must be greater than or equal to 010, because 00X are Control Fields and 01X-09X are Numbers and Code Fields.
    Following configuration of this field by Ex Libris Support, its value will be available in analytics.
    Subfields can be maintained in the Analytics fields identified for Local Param. When this capability is implemented, fields/subfields appear in Alma Analytics with the Alma subfield delimiter (either $$ or ‡) used to delineate the subfield content. Contact Support to enable this feature. Note that reindexing is required to fully implement this capability.
    Note that the local param fields are not related to the MARC type of the record. For example, if field 913 is defined to be in local param 1 then field 913 will always be in local param 1. This is the case if the record is of the type KORMARC, CNMARC, UNIMARC, MARC21, and so forth. It is not possible to have different sets of Local Param 1-10 for different types of MARC.
    Managed by Provider Indicates if the electronic resource is managed by the provider
    MMS ID Stores the MMS ID of the item. This is the MMS ID of the portfolios associated with the electronic collection. It is not the MMS ID of the electronic collection or of the MMS ID of the descriptive bibliographic record added in the Additional tab of the electronic collection editor. If there are no portfolios, the value of this field is empty.
    Modification Date Stores the modification date. Date fields can consist of a partial date, such as just the year or a month and year.
    Modification Date (Calendar) Stores the modification date. Calendar Date fields always consist of a month, date, and year. If the information is not provided, 01 is added, so that a date of 2020 is rendered 01/01/2020. This date format is useful when filtering the report by date.
    Modified By Stores the user name that modified the record
    Network ID This field is used by institutions implementing a Network Zone. It is the same as the MMS ID of the bibliographic record in the Network Zone and can be used to create reports that show the MMS ID in the member institution (using the existing MMS ID), as well as the corresponding MMS ID in the Network Zone.
    Originating System The system where the bibliographic record originated
    Originating System ID The ID of the system where the bibliographic record originated
    Originating System Version The version of the originating system
    Peer Reviewed Indicates if the article was peer reviewed
    Provider Name The name of the provider
    Record Format The format of the bibliographic record. Examples:
    • MARC 21
    • DC
    • KORMARC
    • CNMARC
    • UNIMARC
    Suppressed from Discovery Indicates whether the record is suppressed from external discovery systems

    Dewey Classifications

    Books can be classified with Dewey Classifications.
    In Dewey Classifications, topics are ordered in a hierarchy that is indicated by a three digit number. The highest level of the hierarchy is indicated by a number with one significant digit followed by two zeros, such as 600. The second level in the hierarchy is indicated by a number with two significant digits followed by one zero, such as 630. The third level in the hierarchy is indicated by a number with three significant digits such as 636.
    Note that the Dewey number is taken from the 852 subfield h of the holdings record and not from the 082 of the bibliographic record.
    The field descriptions can be found in the Dewey Classifications shared dimension.
    Dewey Classifications
    Field Description Additional information
    Dewey Number Holds the first 3 digits of the Dewey Classification.
    The Dewey Number comes from the bibliographic record, except for in the Physical Items subject area where it comes from the holdings record.
    Group1 Stores the name of the first level.  
    Group2 Stores the name of the second level.  
    Group3 Stores the name of the third level.  
    Dewey Classifications Stores the Hierarchy column that allows the user to drill down from the first level of the Dewey Classification to the third level. Using this column provides the user with the option to view the accumulative measures (loans or returns) in each level of the hierarchy.  

    LC Classification

    Using this dimension, the user can drill down from Group1 to Group4. In each level, the user may see measures accumulated to the relevant group and see the number of items grouped by classification.
    The field descriptions can be found in the LC Classifications shared dimension.

    Ex Libris works with content providers worldwide to enrich the metadata available in the Alma Community Zone. To enrich the journal/serial content in the CZ, we work directly with the Library of Congress CONSER feed for electronic serials, which we match against our knowledge base to enrich with all of the relevant metadata fields that they supply (for more details, see Community Zone Serial Records Enrichment). We receive weekly updates from CONSER and enrich the CZ records with all relevant metadata, including the 050 fields (when available).

     

    In the case of book content, we work with multiple providers who are willing to share their metadata with the Alma community globally (for more details, see Community Zone Monograph Records Enrichment). If you have local access to these classifications, you may want to consider working with the local extension for these records whenever an update is not available. (For more details, see Working with Local Extension Fields for Community Zone-linked Records)
