Tools to help libraries communicate about the Data Planet statistical repository with their communities.

Usage Reporting Practices

Data Planet provides usage statistics compliant with the COUNTER Release 5 Code of Practice.

As of April 2019, Data Planet will begin the transition to the COUNTER Release 5 Code of Practice, with R5 reports being delivered the subsequent month. Technical contacts at subscribing institutions will receive notices of important updates. For further information on COUNTER 5, please see COUNTER’s Friendly Guide to Release 5 for Librarians.           

Site administrators may access usage statistics on demand via SecureCenter.
