    Intota Assessment: Deselection Reports

    • Product: Intota

    What can you tell me about the data in these reports?

    Deselection Reports let you apply search criteria to enable "smart weeding" of your collection by identifying low usage titles based on a variety of available filters.

    The below reports include the following information:
    • Report: The report name
    • Data Source: Where the data is coming from. If the report includes multiple sources, the most pertinent source is listed
    • Notes: Useful information about the report

    To learn about using report features such as moving columns and saving customizations, see Using the Reports.


  • Ebook Available (i.e. yes/no the print title is also published in Ebook format)
  • Award
  • Book Review

  • Usage column

    By default, each row in the report includes all items (copies) that have the same Acquisition Date, so sometimes the Usage column may display a number greater than the number you selected for the report filter.
    • To remove the consolidation by Acquisition Date so that 1 row always displays usage for only 1 item, use the Title Level / Item Level drop-down menu at the top of the report. The Item Level view of the report will display 1 holding per row, with item-level IDs displaying in the Holding Item ID column.

    Cost Data

    ILS cost data (if uploaded into Intota Assessment) displays in addition to MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price).

    ** Local call numbers can be included in this report. See the September 2015 note below this table.
