L2 Tips – Calculating Total CE Hours for Library Staff
For a director to see what and how many CE activities their staff has attended, they can run an L2 attendance report for the library. This report provides total number of staff participating in LCLS CE events, total number of LCLS CE events attended by those participating staff, the total number of registrations for the LCLS CE events, and the library’s total number of CE contact hours for LCLS CE events.
To run the report, the director needs to sign into LibraryLearning (L2). Go into your personal L2 Profile by clicking on your name at the top right of the screen.
Click on ‘My Events’ listed on the left side of the screen. The events the director is registered to attend will display. Next, click on ‘Library Registrations’ listed in the brown/beige box on the right side of the screen. A short report will display, totaling attendance for a three month period. Change the dates to match the applicable reporting time dates, usually the library’s fiscal year.
Click on ‘Go’ to have L2 calculate the library’s totals for the selected time frame. It will take a minute or so to calculate the library’s total CE numbers. To give an idea of the report, these are the CE totals for LCLS using the dates 1 July 2008 to 15 May 2009.
- Total Staff Participating: 52 (this means 52 different LCLS staff members attended a CE event in the selected time frame. Please note, LCLS board members are included in this number)
- Total Events Attended: 148 (this is how many different events LCLS staff/board members attended)
- Total Registrations: 954 (this is the actual number of registrations LCLS staff/board members made)
- Total Contact Hours: 2089 (this is number of events attended multiplied by the number of contact hours each event actually lasted)
By scrolling through the report, the director can see which staff member attended which CE event.
