    Physical Items Historical Events

    The Physical Items Historical Events subject area allows you to create reports on the following historical events of physical items:
    • Item Transit Event
    • Item Temporary location Event
    • Item Process Status change events
    • Work Order Dept. Status change events
    The following are examples of business questions that can be answered with this subject area:
    • Which items were in a temporary location any time over the past two years?
    • What are the details for items sent in-transit in the past?
    • What are the details for items that were in a temporary location in the past?
    • What work order department was an item in and what was the work order status code?
    • How can I track all of the process statuses an item goes through and the process status change dates?
    • The data in the Physical Items Historical Events subject area begins from August 2017.
    • Creating analytics reports using the fields of this subject area is only possible for live institutions.
    • If an Item is created initially in a temporary location, its first move to a permanent location is not considered an event in Analytics.

    Item Bibliographic Details

    The Item Bibliographic Details table is a dimension table that stores the bibliographic details about the items.
    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) 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.)

    The Bibliographic Details table contains two kinds of fields, those derived from the MARC record and those that come from Alma. Although in analytics there is no distinction made between these fields, for explanatory purposes we have divided them into two tables below.

    Institution

    The shared Institution dimension allows the Network Zone to view reports according to institution. If an analytics report is run from the Network Zone in a collaborative network implementing a Network Zone, all member institutions are included in the report for Institution Code and Institution Name. If an analytics report is run from an institution that is not part of a collaborative network implementing a Network Zone, only the single institution from which the report is run is included in the report for Institution Code and Institution Name.
