View updated report export titles
As part of OCLC's initiatives to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, some vocabulary in Record Manager report titles has been updated.
Metadata report exports now titled as WorldCat Bibliographic record
When exporting some Metadata reports to PDF or Excel, the title no longer contains the words Master Bibliographic record and instead reads WorldCat Bibliographic record.
- A known issue has been fixed where some COUNTER 5 TR_B1 metrics in reports may be less than actuals. COUNTER 5 TR_B1 title data from vendors that don’t contain any ISBN, Proprietary ID, DOI, Print ISSN, Online ISSN, or URI, while not a common occurrence, were not being loaded. This fix will address the issue and load the records even if all those data points for the title are missing in the COUNTER 5 usage file.
- The headers for the Monthly Circulation Statistics Report were incorrect for the Items Renewed column when the Permanent Shelving Location or Temporary Shelving Location variants of the report were selected. Prior, the column header read Items Checked In, but now it correctly reads Items Renewed.
