OCLC, the global library cooperative, has introduced Choreo Insights, a new library analytics solution designed to help academic libraries better align collections with institutional priorities, emerging curriculum needs, and future trends. The solution is now widely available to libraries in North America after being made available to development partner libraries since late 2022.
Choreo Insights uses WorldCat holdings data to enable confident collection development decisions by comparing detailed subject breakdowns of local collections with overlap and gap analysis of any other library or group in WorldCat. Libraries can map collections directly to academic programs using CIP mapping, Library of Congress classifications, FAST subject headings, simple title text searches, and more to see how collections stack up. Analysis can take only seconds to perform and is not limited to one-time reports and static snapshots.
Choreo Insights can be used for collection building, diversity, equity, and inclusion analysis, academic program alignment, and collaboration with other libraries or consortia.
OCLC is featuring the new library analytics solution at the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Conference in Pittsburgh, PA, from March 15-18. Attendees can visit the OCLC booth #303 for more information.Click here to read the original press release.
