PDF of Poster

Gathering, comparing and analyzing usage data for a large collection of electronic resources is a time consuming and arduous process. In the past, limited resources necessitated that Georgia State University Library employ an electronic resources usage analysis strategy that was primarily point-of-need. In an effort to transition to a more systematic and proactive approach, the library acquired EBSCONET® Usage Consolidation in early 2012. Usage Consolidation allows GSU library to store, compile and report on our COUNTER compliant usage data within a single system. This session will provide an overview of GSU’s implementation process, highlight some of the unexpected challenges that occurred along the way, and explore the benefits of adopting the Usage Consolidation system. Attendees will also learn some common problems that occur in vendor supplied data as well as tips for wrangling deviant COUNTER reports into compliance. Audience members will be invited to share their own experiences of working with usage statistics management systems.
