1 Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA) Getting the Most Out of Your Data: Creating Customized Reports Presented by: Ellen Bishop and Wendy Ellis

2 AGENDA What is FCLA? Staff. Our Customers. Types of Reports needed Use of Data Warehouse DW Process Reporting Tool History Report Demos

3 FCLA – Florida Center for Library Automation Library Services Digital Library Systems Support Administration

4 Libraries of the Eleven State Universities

5 Why Data Warehouse (DW) Controlled environment – customize tables, ex. exclude data that could link back to patron, only include needed info Aleph “Configuration” tables – map code with description, ex. Patron status 20 = Faculty Easier to create reports across multiple institutions. FL Aleph Implementation = Multiple Bibs, ADMs & Oracle Add SFX data – MySQL limited space – Stats over time COUNTER use Stats

6 Why DW - Continued Easier for staff w/ little programming experience to write reports – ALEPH Where z35_rec_key = substr(z30_rec_key,1,9) and z35_item_sequence = to_number(substr(z30_rec_key,10,6))) DW Where al_events.adm_doc_num = al_items.adm_doc_num and al_events.seq = al_items.seq Formatting = Dates, Numbers: ex. Changed Aleph Number format Date to Oracle Date format Table Specs

7 DW Process Process ETL (Extract Transform & Load) runs nightly Timing: Process begins at 4am – generally completed by 7am 2 Type of Processes Run ⁻ Recreate New Tables ⁻ Update existing tables with changes
