What should the local health page the library creates contain?
Make a list of health resources relevant to your community, some possibilities:
- county health department website
- local clinics, including for mental health
- fitness & nutritional opportunities (recreation center, etc)
- information on obtaining first aid, CPR, and other trainings (usually available through Fire Department / First Responders).
This is just a suggestion. Here are some fine examples created by other libraries:
- Topeka Shawnee Co. Public Library
- LaCygne Library
- Osage City Public Library
- Coffeyville Public Library
Local Usage Statistics
The device management service has no way at this time to export usage data (i.e., Excel, PDF, Word). Everything is on a global graphical scale and only can been seen in the service console. If the service develops a report generating module for easy collection/distribution of individual device stats in the future, information will be provided here.
