Travel Books Checkouts from 2010 to 2015
MAT 259, 2016
I am going to look closely into dewey class between 914 and 919 since the data that I used last time contains some of non-travel books. This version only shows travel-related books and the top lists in each travel category.
My additional questions are:
where is the most popular spot in each dewey class?
How does checkout frequency change from month to month, year to year?
The checkout period comparison among all travel dewey classes.
I observed some checkout rate changes every month for 6 years, and also checked the popular books at the top of the list in this category. I attached my SQL query combining 5 tables from a new spl DB.
Each dewey class has a certain color within the hue range (0 to 360). The width of the unit varies depends on the checkout frequencies, and the fill colors of all units change according to popularities increasing or decreasing RGB values.
Below is examples of the final screen shots including control P5. Control P5 allows to turn on and off line connecting each units, showing labels, and the movement of all units.
#Below is an example of 3D assignment in Dewey 914
deweyClass AS Dewey,
title AS BookTitle,
subject AS Category,
DATE(checkOut) AS CheckoutDate,
TIME(checkOut) AS CheckoutTime,
COUNT(checkOut) AS CheckoutCount,
itemtype AS ItemType,
TIMESTAMPDIFF(DAY, checkOut, checkInFirst)
deweyClass = 914
-- And (TIMESTAMPDIFF(DAY, checkOut, checkInFirst) != '')
#AND deweyClass <= 919
AND spl.deweyClass.bibNumber = spl.transactions.bibNumber
AND spl.deweyClass.bibNumber = spl.title.bibNumber
AND spl.deweyClass.bibNumber = spl.subject.bibNumber
AND spl.deweyClass.bibNumber = spl.itemToBib.bibNumber
AND spl.itemToBib.itemNumber = spl.itemType.itemNumber
AND (spl.subject.subject LIKE '%travel%'
OR spl.subject.subject LIKE '%guide%'
OR spl.subject.subject LIKE '%guidebook%')
AND (itemType = 'acbk'
OR itemType = 'acdvd'
OR itemType = 'acvhs'
OR itemType = 'jcbk'

OR itemType = 'jcvhs')
AND YEAR(checkOut) >= '2010'
