The system retains an activity log which logs all requests, including OPAC
searches. If a user is logged in, you can get a breakdown of all activity
within that session. Since this data is not stored in the database, you
can't build reports from within the Evergreen reporting interface, however it
would be trivial to extract the required data from the log files and create a
CSV file suitable for import into any reporting tool.
Hope this helps,
