Managing Your Data
The goal of these scripts and reports is to take some of the pressure off staff by automating elements of back office work involved in running the modern library.
When it comes to your data, regular housekeeping is necessary in order to comply with Data-Protection regulations and up-to-date catalogue data can help the credibility of your service by improving the user experience of patrons and staff.
The scripts can be integrated straight into your existing system and may be single use or scheduled to run routinely. Our Data Management team will work closely with you to agree the parameters of the work, ensuring that each script works to your specification.

‘collectionHQ’ is a third-party web application that uses data extracted from your library systems in order to create reports on how to improve your service, including which materials are in greater demand where.

Within OpenGalaxy there is the facility to automatically move borrowers from one category to another based on their age. So when a child passes their 6th birthday and carries out a transaction such as issuing an item via a staff terminal, the process will kick in to move them to the Age 6-12 Category.
