Note: Only active OCLC authorizations have access to the Usage Statistics. To see activity on expired authorizations, use another active authorization to log on and then select the expired authorization from the navigation screen for the appropriate product and time period.
Logging on with any of your institution's OCLC authorizations will give you access to all available reports for your institution. If you do not have access to a product, you will not be able to select the reports tab for that product.
For example, if your institution has access to FirstSearch® and WorldCat Resource Sharing, logging in with your FirstSearch authorization will automatically put you in the FirstSearch reports area but you will also have access to the WorldCat Resource Sharing reports as well as the WorldCat.org™ reports.
Note: Once you have clicked on a report in the www.stats.oclc.org environment, you will need to click the browser's Back button to navigate back to the stats main page, or click the tab to the left to return to the main page for your stats.

An Export button appears at the top right of each report screen once the report is open. Clicking the button pops up a File Download box with the options of Open, Save, Cancel, and More Info.
Clicking Open will open the file in Microsoft® Excel. From there you can organize the data to fit your needs. To save the file, click File, Save or Save As, then select the desired directory/folder. Make sure the file type is Microsoft Excel Workbook (*.xls) before saving. In some circumstances, the Text Import wizard will display because the file is actually a tab delimited text file. When saving, be sure to select the correct file type extension.
An Email button appears at the top right of each report screen once the report is open. Clicking the button takes you to a screen where you can choose to send the report to one or more designated e-mail address(es).
The E-mail button can also be used to set up an automatic e-mail feature that will send your designated reports on a monthly basis to the e-mail address(es) that you specify.
Click the Help button on the top right of any screen to view help.

Although passwords have no expiration limit, it is recommended that they be changed periodically to increase security. FirstSearch users may change their passwords via the WorldCat Services Administrative Module. WorldCat Resource Sharing and Connexion users can change their passwords by contacting their nearest OCLC office.
The Home screen in the WorldCat Services Administrative Module contains information to help you manage your FirstSearch account. The Low Search Notification feature lets you request that FirstSearch send an e-mail notice when it is time to order more searches.
If you have a per-search account, the screen contains the number of remaining searches and the expiration date of the account. If you have a subscription account, the screen contains the expiration date of the account. If you have a hybrid account, the screen contains both kinds of information. If you turn on per-article purchase, the screen displays the amounts budgeted and spent for per-article purchase for the current month.
