At Minnesota State University, Mankato, we’ve created a tool to provide reports which bring together a wide variety of data in one place. These can include, but are not limited to:
- Scimago journal evaluative data
- Any number of COUNTER JR1s
- Cost and payment data from the integrated library system or from vendor licenses
- Holdings data from the knowledgebase
- Subject data from indexes, Scimago, or the knowledgebase
- Journal data from Ulrich’s
- Custom data from academic departments
- And more, including calculations based on combinations of these data

We developed the system for several purposes, including our biennial full journal collection review, but we are most excited about the outreach opportunities. Our JCAE consultant leads a multi-faceted service that aims to use this data to increase usage of the collection and university collaboration with the library.

During our presentation, we’ll display some example reports and discuss their creation process. We will also talk about the JCAE service overall and what we have learned so far by providing these reports to our liaisons and to academic departments.
