Intended For


How can you quantify, in a meaningful way, the value your library delivers to your community? Intota™ Assessment provides the total picture of holdings, usage, and overlap across your entire collection, for both monographs and serials, in both print and electronic formats. This view into the value of your library is based on real data – a holistic assessment that can include return on investment, which is increasingly important in times of shrinking acquisition budget.

You can turn to Intota™ Assessment for both quantitative and qualitative analysis. It is supported by authoritative Books in Print®, Resources for College Libraries™, Ulrich’s™, and the ProQuest knowledgebase, and automates ingestion of library data including COUNTER reports.

Use its robust suite of business intelligence tools to help you make informed decisions regarding collection development. Innovative views and metrics of your collection empower your staff to focus on delivering higher value services to patrons.
