Penn Libraries Presents

MetriDoc is the Penn Libraries' data warehouse and allows us to analyze widely varied sets of data both in isolation and in relation to each other. One of the primary data collections pertains to our Interlibrary Loan transactions.

BorrowDirect is the ILL program used for borrowing and lending between the Ivies+ Consortium.  In this Penn Libraries Presents, I will present a PowerBI dashboard pulling data from the MetriDoc database for deeper investigation into the BorrowDirect Relais data.  The Impact Assessment and Organizational Analysis Team will be interested in hearing your thoughts on the information presented in the dashboard.

Be prepared to engage in discussion!

We look forward to seeing you there!
