Alma Analytics: A Holistic Approach

  • 15 Jul 2022
  • 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Date/ Time: July 15, 2022/ 9am- 3pm EST 
Cost: $75

Presenters: Kim Edwards and Emily Nilson

Ex Libris has made extensive Alma Analytics documentation freely accessible on its website. However, because work done in Analytics is largely task-based, the documentation itself also focuses on the individual tasks rather than how those tasks fit holistically into your organization’s larger processes. This webinar will examine the full Analytics workflow – beginning with report creation and editing and moving through the various ways you can distribute reports to others throughout your organization. We will also address data visualization and provide tips and tricks on how to effectively use it to tell your Analytics story and communicate complex data in a visual format.

By the end of this webinar attendees will:

  • Be able to create and edit Analytics reports
  • Understand how Analytics fits within the larger Alma environment
  • Be able to distribute report results using a variety of methods
  • Participants will be familiar with options to create data visualizations in Alma Analytics
