WilsonWeb Offers Project COUNTER Statistical Reports

Oct 19, 2004

WilsonWeb, H.W. Wilson's Internet reference database service, has passed an audit of its usage statistics reports by Project COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources), an international initiative designed to facilitate the recording and exchange of online usage statistics among librarians, publishers, and intermediaries. H.W. Wilson has made COUNTER reports standard to the WilsonWeb statistical interface in response to the increased importance of standardized database usage statistics through COUNTER compliancy. WilsonWeb will continue to offer other reports based on the earlier ICOLC-compliant requirements. WilsonWeb statistics reports include Database Usage, Session Usage, Peak Usage, Journal Usage, IP Usage, and Turnaways. All can be downloaded as needed, or automatically each week or month.
