COUNTER & SUSHI: Standards for Subscription Electronic Resource Usage Data and Its Delivery
Library Technology Conference
  • Louann Terveer, St. Catherine University--MLIS Student
Description

This poster describes two standards utilized in the reporting and delivery of usage data of electronic resources: Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources (COUNTER) and the Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative (SUSHI) Protocol. The first standard is comprised of a Code of Practices (COP) for creating standardized reports for libraries; the second is a protocol for the automated request and retrieval of usage data reports. These initiatives hold promise in stream-lining, for libraries, the process of compiling and analyzing usage statistics of electronic resources obtained from various vendors. A brief analysis of vendor participation in the latest release of the COUNTER COP/SUSHI will be included.
