Annual Statistics

As a Site Manager, you’ll also likely be compiling statistics of the LibPress site use.

BC libraries: If you are a Sitka/Evergreen library, a statistical report is posted on the BCLC website in January that, in addition to detailed circulation statistics, also includes a total count of hits for both the LibPress site and for your library’s catalogue. This service is provided thanks to funding from the province.

Manitoba libraries: While a full statistical report is not provided, we have compiled the total LibPress site hits for you.
