COUNTER - Draft Release #4 Available

Dear Readers, we've been asked to post this important
announcement to the list:

The Draft Release 4 of the COUNTER Code of Practice for
e-Resources is now available for comment and may be accessed on
the COUNTER website at:


This new Release has been developed with input from vendors,
librarians and intermediaries. Release 4 is a single, integrated
Code of Practice covering journals, databases and books, as well
as multimedia content. As such it will supersede both Release 3
of the Code of Practice for Journals and Databases (published in
2008) and Release 1 of the Code of Practice for Books and
Reference Works (published in 2006).

The Draft Release 4 will be available on the COUNTER website
until Friday 20 January 2012 for public comment. All interested
parties are encouraged to review the documents and to submit
their comments to the COUNTER Project Director
(pshepherd@projectCounter.org ). Feedback received will be taken
into account by the COUNTER Executive Committee in the
preparation of the final, definitive version of Release 4, which
is scheduled for publication in March 2012, with a deadline for
implementation by vendors of 31 December 2013.
