COUNTER Release 5 Code of Practice Webinar

May 8 2018, 2018, 10-11 PDT, 13-14 EDT, 12-13 CDT 18-19 BST

Release 5 is the new structure for the COUNTER Code of Practice, with new Reports and new Metric Types which will represent usage in a much more accurate way than before. In January 2019, all publishers and vendors are required to comply with the new Release of the Code of Practice.

In this webinar we will look at the new metrics, explain how to interpret the new reports and discuss the ways these can be used to help you evaluate your subscriptions. There will be opportunities to ask questions and share comments. This webinar will be presented by members of the COUNTER Executive Committee.

The webinar will be of interest to all librarians who have some experience of using COUNTER and want to prepare for the new Release and learn how to get more out of it.
