New Analytics Solution From OCLC Available to North American Libraries
OCLC announced the following:
OCLC’s new Choreo Insights library analytics solution is now available to libraries in North America that are seeking to better align academic library collections with institutional priorities, new and emerging curriculum needs, and future trends. …
Using WorldCat holdings data, Choreo Insights is a flexible solution that enables confident collection development decisions by comparing detailed subject breakdowns of local collections with overlap and gap analysis of any other library or group in WorldCat.
Libraries can map collections directly to academic programs using CIP (Classification of Institutional Programs) mapping. They can also use Library of Congress classifications, FAST subject headings, simple title text searches, and more to see how collections stack up.
Analysis can take only seconds to perform and is not limited to one-time reports and static snapshots. Libraries can try a variety of analysis scenarios, such as comparing institutions with programs they hold in high esteem, or trim results based on years of publication and other facets.
For more information, read the press release.
