Session Title

Beyond Vendor Solutions: Homegrown COUNTER Usage Statistics Reports and Analysis

Description

Do you currently subscribe to a vendor-provided solution for COUNTER usage statistics reporting and analysis? Do you find the available reports limited and wanting? Do you even have a usage statistics solution, paid or otherwise? Regardless of the answer, there are low-cost and relatively straightforward alternative solutions that can be pursued! This presentation and interactive demonstration will show that with a few years of COUNTER reports, a titlelist, a pricelist, and some spreadsheet skills, sophisticated multi-year journal usage reports can be created that rival any turnkey statistics solution, and can in fact be used for advanced collection development analysis and decision-making.
