Serials Solutions Announces SUSHI Support

Jun 03, 2008

Serials Solutions, e-resource access and management services (ERAMS) provider, has tested and deployed SUSHI, the Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative, with its 360 Counter e-resource assessment service. The SUSHI protocol was developed to allow librarians to circumvent the process of downloading, aggregating, and formatting COUNTER-compliant usage reports from vendor websites. SUSHI enables Serials Solutions to retrieve COUNTER reports directly from vendors and upload them to 360 Counter. SUSHI-enhanced 360 Counter means that the customer may go straight to usage analysis and bypass the manual labor.
