Hi George.  Hope things are well with you and Rose and the other folks
you work with.
I downloaded this report at the end of September - but only today got
around to looking at it for some title count work that I am doing.  I
was so excited to get this because I had been downloading each vendor
list quarterly on my own - painstaking, but necessary for some of our
ACRL and other reports.
Good news:  it has only my providers/databases listed.
Bad news:  it has all of their titles, not just those titles to which we
subscribe.  I immediately noticed this because of the list of American
Institute of Physics/Scitation title list - it's pretty lengthy on the
downloaded report (170+ titles) and we only subscribe to 3 titles.  
The data from the "Hide" column does not appear on the report  ----and
if that is on purpose, then the data is also NOT being taken into
consideration when developing the report.
I hope this makes sense and I hope it's an easy fix.
As you know, the report is massive, so I am not attaching a copy.  Feel
free to login into our account and see what I'm talking about.
Thanks for looking into this for us.

Subject: Gold Rush "Export All Holdings" Report
For Immediate Release: Denver, CO. September 3, 2009


The Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries is pleased to announce a new
"Export All Holdings" report in the Gold Rush Staff Toolbox.  This
report is available to all libraries that use Gold Rush for A-Z/link
resolution and/or ERM (electronic resource management). The new report
allows a library to easily export their entire set of holdings from Gold
Rush in .csv (comma separated value) format which can then be easily
imported into Excel or other applications.
The "Export All Holdings" feature allows libraries to export everything
or to customize the extract to exclude classes of materials such as open
access journals, print journals and indexed-only titles.  These
customizations can be run in any combination.  Once the report is staged
the user will receive an email indicating report availability (usually
within 15 minutes) and will receive a link to a Website where it can be
downloaded.  These reports can be quite large and this avoids the
problem of email limitations, firewalls and spam filters.
"Export All Holdings" shows all journals from all title lists which a
library has configured (selected) in the Gold Rush "Holdings" tab.  This
report does not de-duplicate titles but lists journals in every database
in which they appear.   It is recommended that if the export is loaded
into Excel, that version 2007 or later be used since older versions have
a limit of 65,536 rows.
Gold Rush supports a wide array of data export options and to facilitate
easy access to some of the options a new section has been created in the
Reports tab which groups many of the export options together so that a
library can determine what report is best for them.   The reports
included in this tab include:
1.       Export All Holdings (described above)
2.       Download Journal Information for Provider and Database (this
supports the export of an individual title list)
3.       My Full Text Journals (this is a simple list of journal
titles/ISSNs which is de-duplicated and is a great place to get a
full-text journal count)
4.       XML Google Scholar Holdings (this is a library's XML holdings
which are shared with Google Scholar if a library has configured this
feature.  It is a de-duplicated list and shows maximum years of
Not included above is a full XML extraction report which can be run
through the Gold Rush XML Gateway (called GRX) which allows a library to
essentially extract the same data as found in the new Export All
Holdings report but it is formatted in an XML markup.  This full XML
extraction has been available for over a year and is described in the
GRX Documentation.
