Understand emailed reports

If you enable reports in Settings > Reports, reports will be available around the time when files of records have been output for your library or, in the case of WorldCat Holdings reports, after there are changes in your holdings in WorldCat. You will not receive an email on days when there is no activity.

Reports will be available via email. When your first report is available, you will get an email from with the subject field: "The report [name of report] you requested for [YYYYMMDD]." Reports are also available in the OCLC Usage Statistics Portal and they are identical to the reports that come by email. See how to Access emailed reports in the OCLC Usage Statistics Portal.

If you have not configured email reports, see Institution settings, Reports for instructions.
