    To create a report of titles:
    1. Select the date range that you want the report to include. Select a start date from the left calendar and end date from the right calendar.
    2. Select the button with the type of report that you want to create:
      • Titles lent – a list of all titles lent
      • Requested Titles Held Locally – a list of titles that when queried against the RapidILL database were identified as being held in your library’s RapidILL holdings file.
      • Requested Titles (Matched) – a list of titles that were queried against and matched in the RapidILL database. These requests went into the RapidILL system.
      • Requested Titles (Unmatched) – a list of titles that were queried against the RapidILL database, but did not match the holdings of any of the libraries in your pods.
      • All titles Queried – a list of every title that was queried against the RapidILL database, regardless of its outcome (matched, unmatched, held locally).
    The following is an example of a report:
