At Cornell, we use stat codes in the Voyager LMS for reporting on collection usage by patron demographic, such as college, department, and field of study. Stat codes can capture additional information on faculty, staff, and students. Patron demographic information is used to inform collection development and funding decisions in libraries. If this information cannot be include in the User Management application, we would like to use Custom Fields to capture this additional information for use in reports.
Examples of stat codes include: field of study, college, library card holder stat code types (show what program user got his/her library card), academic rank, department, career, program, plan.
