What can I find in the Community Collections Usage Dashboard?
The Community Collections Usage Dashboard is a self-service dashboard that enables users with Admin-level permissions to track interest in and access of your institution's collections through custom reporting. Here, you can visualize the use of your institution's collection by individual item requests and time periods of access.

The following information and data visualizations are available in the collection dashboard:
