Get database statistics

New Statistics Portal (beta)

The new Statistics Portal uses automation to pull usage numbers from the various vendor sites, and presents the most useful numbers (generally “searches” and “items”) in a consistent interface. Over the coming months, we’ll be adding more databases to the new portal, and making improvements to the interface and navigation.

Select your library from the drop-down list on each vendor link below.

EBSCO
Contains stats for each database under the EBSCOhost umbrella. Includes usage number for library-paid databases separately. Download CSV detail file for specific database titles.
World Book
All World Book products reported together.
Gale
Download CSV detail file to see usage for Kids Infobits and ChiltonLibrary.
Oxford
Download CSV detail file to see usage for Oxford Reference Encyclopedias and Very Short Introductions. Please note that Oxford stats are not available until after the 18th of the following month.
ProQuest (Fold3)
Currently, ProQuest only provides Fold3 stats (and a few of their library-purchased resources) through this interface.
Lynda Library edition
Does not contain usage for the new LinkedIn Learning platform.

The new automated collection method may be reporting slightly different numbers than you've seen in the past. If you have questions, please contact OPLIN Support.

Some other vendors provide direct access to statistics from their websites:

African American Heritage
This link should recognize the IP address of your library, and provides various options for statistics delivery. These stats take some time to completely compile, so ProQuest recommends waiting until the 5th of the month to get accurate usage statistics for the previous month.
 
Ancestry Library Edition
This link should recognize the IP address of your library, and provides various options for statistics delivery. These stats take some time to completely compile, so ProQuest recommends waiting until the 5th of the month to get accurate usage statistics for the previous month.
 
EBSCOadmin
Additional reports of EBSCOhost usage, including NoveList, Auto Repair Reference Center, and any other EBSCO databases for which the library has a subscription. Requires library password. EBSCOadmin is EBSCO's own tool for checking EBSCO database usage statistics, creating reports, and customizing certain interface options. Since it is maintained by EBSCO and not OPLIN, a separate ID and password are required. If you do not know your ID and password, please contact the OPLIN Support Center, support@oplin.ohio.gov for assistance. For further details on how the tool itself works, click on the "Help" link at the top of the screen after logging in.
 
HeritageQuest Online
This link should recognize the IP address of your library, and provides various options for statistics delivery. These stats take some time to completely compile, so ProQuest recommends waiting until the 5th of the month to get accurate usage statistics for the previous month.
 
Sanborn Insurance Maps
Use the link at the bottom of the page, no login required.
 
Transparent Language
This is the same link users will use to access the learning portal. There are links inside the program that can bring admins to the Admin Portal. Once you login, you’ll see a link to the “Admin Portal” at the top of the page. If you don't know your admin login credentials, please contact OPLIN support.

Cumulative statistics

For some vendors, accumulated monthly statistics are available as spreadsheets:

Service objectives:

  • Incident Response: OPLIN staff will respond within one hour to malfunctions of database statistics during regular business hours Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., excluding State of Ohio holidays; contact us through the OPLIN Support site.
  • Incident Resolution: OPLIN staff will either resolve the incident within 4 business hours or will open an incident ticket with the database vendor(s) and work collaboratively toward resolving the incident within the timeframe specified in the vendor's agreed service objective.
