FOLIO Analytics

A repository of reports and other analytics developed for FOLIO by the FOLIO Reporting SIG and based on the requirements of FOLIO partner libraries.

Queries are designed to run on LDP/Metadb, an open source platform for analytics and an OLF-member project, and its development has included input from the FOLIO reporting community.

See the FOLIO Forum discussion of reporting in February 2021 for an introduction.

LDP is documented on GitHub:

The FOLIO Reporting SIG provides support for FOLIO reporting and data analytics through Slack channels and discussion forums on GitHub. 

For general questions, connect with the community by joining the Metadb Slack space and adding yourself to channels related to FOLIO reporting.

Panorama is a modern library analytics platform combining different library and campus data sets to enable insights that were not possible until now. The platform features visualization tools and a central dashboard to collect, manipulate and display data about the library and the users it serves.

Note: this is not an open-source software project. Access to Panorama requires hosting services from EBSCO.

Ask in reporting-general or reach out to an EBSCO representative in the community.
