Launched in 2002, COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) is an international initiative serving librarians, publishers and intermediaries by setting standards that facilitate the recording and reporting of online usage statistics in a consistent, credible and compatible way.

Our presenter is Lorraine Estelle, the COUNTER Project Director. She is experienced in the information industry with a background in libraries, consortia, shared services, vendors and publishers. She has managed and conducted a wide range of projects, with an interest in new business models for electronic information resources and the financial impact of gold open access. She directed the development of several national shared services in the UK including Jisc Collections and the Journals Usage Statistics Portal. She looks forward to your questions!

We look forward to your attendance!
