New features and enhancements

Item Statistics date for Last Issued field and Number of times Circulated in lifetime

For WMS libraries only, the ‘Latest Circulation Date’ and ‘Circulated # times in lifetime’ fields have been updated to match the item statistics page in WMS Circulation, which include any migrated statistics from previous integrated library systems. This circulation data will be refreshed weekly in Collection Evaluation. Prior to this release, these fields only displayed data for events that happened from the time the institution launched WMS.

This will be apparent when using the ‘Latest Circulation Date’ and ‘Circulated # times in lifetime’ filters in My Library, Unique/Shared comparisons, and in the exported title list in the ‘Number of Circulations’ and ‘Last Circulated’ columns:

Circulated # times in lifetime

Number of Circulations

The ‘Circulated # times in lifetime’ will now match the Issued Count and the ‘Latest Circulation Date’ will match the Last Issued value on the item statistics page in WMS Circulation:

Issued Count

Prior to this release, there was a known issue in which WMS Circulation data used for filtering results in Collection Evaluation/My Library was stale.  With this release the data will be current.
