Re: initiative to standardize database stats?

Hi Mindy,

COUNTER does cover databases. Journals are covered by the JR 
standard reports (e.g. JR1, JR2, etc.) while databases are 
covered by the DB ones (e.g. DB1, DB2, etc).


DB reports are a little harder to analyze compared to journals as 
you can more easily see the cost benefit in journals because 
there is document delivery. That is, if you see a low cost per 
view, you know the subscription is helping your patrons and 
saving you money.
