Presentation Topic Description

Does your institution want to know if you have enough copies of high-demand items, such as reserves and equipment?   This session will show a way to use the Python pandas and numpy libraries to drill through Analytics reports and find out how often all copies of a given item were checked out.  I'll briefly introduce the libraries, and talk about how Tufts has used these stats to allocate funding for our Purchased Textbook program.
