EBSCO Publishing Releases SUSHI Server

Sep 19, 2008

EBSCO Publishing has released a SUSHI (Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative) server. SUSHI facilitates automated retrieval of usage data from EBSCOhost databases in compliance with the COUNTER Code of Practice. The SUSHI standard allows librarians to bypass manual data aggregation of usage statistics. Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources (COUNTER) assists librarians, publishers, intermediaries, and industry organizations by facilitating the recording and exchange of online usage statistics. SUSHI builds on the work of COUNTER by allowing automated request and delivery of COUNTER compliant usage reports.
