What can I do with an eBooks (COUNTER r4) dataset?

In this article

The eBooks dataset allows you to analyze the usage of all of your eBook platforms in one place. These datasets support the uploading of COUNTER files, in addition to the harvesting of SUSHI data directly from your providers. If you happen to have a platform that does not support COUNTER or SUSHI, no worries! You can manually enter or upload generic usage data, as well.

For each of your platforms, you'll be able to analyze the total number of section requests, title requests, and searches. You can also record cost data for your platforms, as well, providing you with valuable cost-per-use statistics.

There are even reports that allow you to easily track titles with the highest and lowest usage, which can be a huge help when it comes time to consider your renewals. The trends report also allows you to see how your usage has changed over time, as well.
