  • Counter and SUSHI are partial solutions; you need a tool to tie it all together
  • Slicing and Dicing: consortial Paperstats at SCELC

    1. 1. PaperStats from Pubget:A Consortial Usage Stats Service<br />Rick Burke, SCELC<br />ALCTS<br />New Orleans, LA<br />June 25, 2011<br />
    2. 2. What is SCELC<br />The Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium<br />We serve 111 private academic and nonprofit research libraries throughout the state, plus one in Nevada and three in Texas<br />Our primary activity has been negotiating offers for electronic resources and related services for our member libraries<br />We are an opt-in consortium, and we license over 2400 different products<br />80% of SCELC are schools <2000 FTE, so the small school market is key<br />
    3. 3. Why Usage Stats? <br />As a nonprofit entity, SCELC needs to provide valuable services to its members that go beyond the core “buying club” activity<br />Given that the acquisition of e-resources is core to our mission, there was an evident need to help libraries track usage and analyze costs<br />Existing tools were either too expensive or inadequate to meet the needs of many libraries<br />
    4. 4. Why PaperStats?<br />Pubget, as a discovery tool, started its services by automating full text article retrieval for end users<br />Pubget extended its services to automate the serials management and stats analysis process for libraries<br />This automated login process lends itself to retrieving usage stats quickly and efficiently<br />Add to this an analysis tool that breaks down the retrieved statistics into meaningful data<br />
    5. 5. SCELC and PaperStats<br />SCELC worked with Pubget to build on their automated login technology to create a consortial portal<br />The consortial version uses institutional identifiers and a single master password to retrieve statistics for every SCELC member<br />Libraries can go to the portal to retrieve their statistics for the publishers currently covered by PaperStats<br />SCELC can obtain a consortial view of usage<br />
    6. 6. Without PaperStats<br />Library staff have to gather statistics manually from many different publishers<br />Each publisher has<br />Different formats for data and delivery<br />Different access methods<br />Different availability dates<br />Cost statistics need to be calculated separately<br />Data needs to be cleaned up and aggregated manually<br />This can be a labor-intensive and cumbersome process prone to data loss and errors <br />
    7. 7. Automation<br />PaperStats automates this process<br />We provide SCELC and COUNTER R3 passwords<br />Pubget interacts with the publishers’ admin data to retrieve the data<br />Consortial version includes automated import of data from consortially-licensed resources<br />Pubget returns usage reports to the librarian<br />Access is fast and always available<br />No need to aggregate data and send it elsewhere for reporting and analysis<br />
    8. 8. Consortial Enhancements<br />SCELC can track stats for each member<br />Automated import of consortia stats<br />Can retrieve data across a series of dates, e.g. a period of months<br />Member logins are pre-populated<br />The library can access all COUNTER compliant usage stats across their serials holdings<br />The library can obtain a top level view of their most and least-viewed publishers and titles<br />
    9. 9. Negotiate More Effectively<br />With COUNTER-compliant costs-per-view in hand, negotiate with publishers to realize more realistic cost models<br />Uncover previously hidden cost information<br />Utilize consortium-wide data to negotiate optimal terms for the group as a whole<br />Obtain a better understanding of our consortium members’ usage patterns and collection needs<br />
    10. 10. SCELC Benefits<br />Member-level statistics for e-journal packages are automatically collected<br />Libraries pay a very modest fee to access usage data & analysis tools for their SCELC packages<br />Libraries have the option to license PaperStats individually to add non-SCELC (locally-licensed) packages<br />Consortia-wide data readily available to the whole group for analysis and reporting<br />
    11. 11. Publishers Covered by SCELC PaperStats<br />ACS<br />Cambridge Univ Press<br />EBSCOHost<br />Elsevier ScienceDirect<br />Emerald<br />Gale<br />Nature Publishing Group<br />Palgrave Macmillan<br />Springer (Metapress)<br />Wiley<br />

    14. 14. Automatic Harvesting<br />for ALL members<br />Single Consortia-level<br />password<br />
    15. 15. Breadth of package use<br /><ul><li>For whole consortium or individual members
    16. 16. Full list & Supporting Raw reports</li></ul> downloadable from same screen <br />
    17. 17. Does this institution need the package? <br />Or this one? <br />What about <br />this one?<br />
    18. 18. Cost analysis (coming soon at the consortial level)<br />Can I save money by dropping journals?<br />Cost analysis: Highest cost per view journals<br />Can I save money by adding journals?<br />Cost analysis: PPV vs Subscription<br />Is this bundle saving me money?<br />Cost analysis: Bundle vs Journal<br />
