- When you are comparing your WorldShare ILL Statistics and ILLiad Statistics they do not match and you want to know why
- ILLiad, WorldShare ILL
The reason ILLiad shows different statistics than WorldShare ILL is because of these differences:
- ILLiad uses a different Database than WorldShare ILL.
- ILLiad uses a different query than WorldShare ILL. For instance, ILLiad can include Docline, Rapid, ISO ILL, and other requests that are not included in OCLC.
- ILLiad does queries dynamically. It takes a picture of what the Database shows at that time. WorldShare does not.
An example is that if you took a query for Books Borrowed from July 1, 2019. Then someone changed an Article Request to a Loan Request from May 30, 2020 and now the TransactionDate is June 24, 2020. Then you ran the same report, the report will change. ILLiad is dynamic.
