Statistics modules provided in the WISCAT system can tell you a lot about your library's resource sharing activity. 

How many days does it take to fill a request?

How many lenders get a request before it is filled?

How many borrowing requests do you initiate?

How many lending requests do you fill?

How many of those requests are loans? Photocopies?

WISCAT staff has created a new guide, Access Interlibrary Loan Statistics in WISCATdescribing the statistical reports available to help you manage your interlibrary loan workflow.
