COUNTER has published this third module in the Manual for Librarians. It summarizes the key changes in reports between Release 4 and Release 5 of the COUNTER standard.
The manual looks at examples of the new Release 5 Standard Views and compares them to the corresponding Release 4 reports. This highlights the new metric types so that librarians can see how they affect cost-per-use calculations, and how they offer new possibilities for usage analysis.
The module is freely available and can be downloaded from https://tinyurl.com/sfecw2c7
Other modules in the manual cover:
- Books: Understanding metrics and standard views
