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.

To see your library's numbers for last month, visit stats.oplin.org/common/report.
If the site does not automatically detect your library, please select your library from the drop-down list. Click the linked database name for more usage numbers. Individual databases are also linked below.

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:

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.
 
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.
