District Analysis

Information Needed For District Analysis

In order to complete a district wide collection analysis, we will need a MARC file that contains all schools within your district. You can find instructions on how to export a MARC file and send it to us on our Send Records page. Please note that our standard district analysis completion takes two weeks. If you need it completed sooner, please email us at caps@mackin.com.
