Circulation and Count of Books, Adult and Juvenile, by Dewey Range (2018)

  • Top 30 Dewey Categories System-wide, for Adult and Juvenile collections, ranked by circulation and count  of items

    • Circulation is based on what was checked out at each library, not the item’s owning library; the report may therefore show circulation in an area of the collection where the library does not own any items, based on the item count column. Any nonfiction call number beginning with a prefix (ex. +, J, PB, etc) are excluded, but biography collections with call numbers beginning with B or BIO are included, and added into the total 920 Dewey Range.

    • For both the Adult and Juvenile tabs, subjects that are in the top ten circulating subjects are highlighted, with the same color highlighting the subject on the count side of the report, to indicate which items are highly circulating and large collections. Red text indicates that the category has high circulation, but is not in the top 30 categories by item count.

  • Fond du Lac County
  • Green Lake County
  • Marquette County
  • Waushara County
  • WInnebago County
  • Count and circulation (2011) of books, adult and juvenile, by Dewey breakouts
    The Dewey report is based on the Item types--BOOK, BOOK-LH and BOOK-NH for adult, and JBOOK, JBOOK-LH, and JBOOK-NH for juvenile.
    The circulation is based on what was checked out at the library.  Since that material may have come from another library, the report may show circulation in a Dewey area where the library doesn't own any titles.  There is a description for each Dewey breakout.
    The report shows the counts and circulation for all of the WALS libraries.  It has been formatted for printing a single library at a time.  Use the print preview to determine the pages needed for just your library.
    The spreadsheet includes a "Top 30" for both adult and juvenile Dewey circulation and item counts.
    The report EXCLUDES adult nonfiction for Campbellsport and juvenile for Coloma because those libraries use broad categories rather than Dewey for those parts of their collection.
    The report also EXCLUDES any nonfiction call number that starts with a letter rather than an actual dewey number:  The prefixes +, J, PB, WI, for example.
    The report DOES include B and BIO.  These were added to the 920 Dewey range.
