Suggestion for Increase of Shared Dimensions Between Subject Areas in Analytics
We have donors who require reports on how we are spending their endowment funding. These reports include Fund Transaction data, Bibliographic Details, and Holding Details. The idea is that the donor should be able to locate any item within our library that we have purchased on their funds. Unfortunately, Holding Details lies within the Physical Items subject area, and currently is not a shared dimension in the Funds Expenditure subject area. Holding Details (such as in the case of Call Numbers) are closely linked in usefulness with Bibliographic Details.
My suggestion, therefore, is that ExLibris please add Holdings Details as a shared dimension within the Funds Expenditure subject area. This would enable us to create reports drawing from two subject areas utilizing this important parameter.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
