COUNTER releases manual for librarians and guidance for consortial reporting

Comparing Counts between Release 4 and Release 5
We are delighted to make available our latest module in our Manual for librarians. This module summarizes the key changes in reports between Release 4 and Release 5 of the COUNTER standard. We look at examples of the new Release 5 Standard Views and compare them to the corresponding Release 4 reports. Please feel free to share this with your library customers. You can download the PDF.

Guidance for consortial reporting
We have published new guidance for publishers and vendors about how to create reports for their consortium members. We describe the method for extending Master Reports so that they can be broken down by consortium member institutions by including their names and customer IDs. Please note that these Consortium Reports are not a requirement of the COUNTER Code of Practice Release 5 and therefore will not be subject to a routine COUNTER audit.
