The development of library customized reports has always beenone of the intractable problems that library managers urgently seekto solve. Similarly, library automation system manufacturers arebruised on this issue, not only the high cost of development services,but also the frequent changes in demand. The problem is still difficultto have by a cost-effective solution. In recent years, ExLibris hasdeveloped an add-on system Aleph Reporting Center (ARC) for itslibrary automation system Aleph to provide Aleph customers morethan 100 pre-defined statistical reports. However, such reportingsystems only support specific automation systems, and cannot fullymeet the customized needs of libraries'. Data warehouse technologyhas been quite mature since the 1970s. Most database managementsystems such as SQL Server also provide tools to support theestablishment of data warehouses. Considering the cost-effectivenessand the demand elasticity of customization, this study proposes thedata warehouse application model of libraries to solve the abovedilemma. The application model proposed in this research, the systemenvironment is constructed by Microsoft SQL Server, EXCEL; designand development are mainly accomplished by the librarian and systemlibrarian. This study concludes with a practical case to verify thefeasibility of the proposed model.
