Visualizing Your ILS Data With Kibana
Our consortium wanted to use its ILS data for more than static monthly summary reports. We used Kibana, an open-source analytics and visualization platform, to collect circulation information from our Polaris database to create live data dashboards. These dashboards allow our consortium members to view dynamic, up-to-the-minute graphs and heatmaps of patron and branch activity that can be filtered down to the individual transaction level. From geographic analysis of collection use to a real-time feed of titles being placed on hold, Kibana will provide fresh insight into your library data. This presentation is relevant to all libraries.
