Hi Kate, welcome. :)

Without development, I can think of one "quick & dirty" (TM) idea.
Create a specific staff account (or accounts) for handling these
circulations you'd like to track, and have staff use Admin -> Operator
Change to quickly and temporarily log in with such an account.

Then your report need only look circs handled by that staff user or
users (perhaps basing the filter on a special Profile for such staff
users rather than hard-coding in their barcodes or id's).

Longer term, we may want consider creating circ-level stat cats to
compliment item and patron stat cats.
