COUNTER Release 5 has brought many improvements to usage reporting. A COUNTER Executive Committee member will provide an overview of how the project teams have worked to ensure that the publishers and vendors are now compliant with the new standard, and how you can verify their compliance. The session will explain how Release 5 enables you to compare apples to apples in this messy landscape and the best metric for calculating cost per use of a book title. The second half of this presentation will address some of the thorny questions that accompany COUNTER R5’s improvements. Which metrics are the best for decision making or demonstrating value? How can we balance the needs for accuracy and long-term consistency in reporting journal usage? This presentation will share the perspectives of two electronic resources librarians from university libraries with different campus compositions, budgets, and procedures. These librarians will share how they are adapting the renewal procedures of their libraries and some of insights they have gained from the new data about user behavior and differences between vendor platforms.
