Who is COUNTER for?
Libraries spend considerable amounts of money licensing different types of online content to support their user’s needs. Libraries need to assess user activity, in relation to this content, to ensure that this money is spent as productively as possible.
The COUNTER Code of Practice helps librarians demonstrate the value of electronic resources by facilitating the recording and reporting of online resource usage stats in a consistent and credible way.
The implementation of the Code of Practice helps publishers and vendors support their library customers and provide statistics comparable with those of their competitors.
To become COUNTER compliant, publishers and vendors must undergo an independent audit of their COUNTER reports within six months of signing the Declaration of Counter Compliance.
