Understanding and Acquiring E-Resource Usage Statistics


More and more often library staff are being asked to work with metrics and measures to document impact and determine service or resource allocations. If you’re not comfortable with finding and using data, this can be a daunting task.  Where do you start?  What should you be collecting?  This session is designed to help you better understand a rich, but potentially overwhelming, source you can mine—your e-resource usage statistics themselves.  In this introductory webinar, attendees will walk through the process of accessing and compiling, relevant usage data for your electronic subscriptions to better understand how they are (or aren’t) being used. Special attention will be given to the newly released COUNTER 5 reports.

Attendees will have the opportunity to…

  • Understand challenges and standards of data collection
  • Identify and prioritize available data sources
  • Explore options for exporting available reports
