Gale’s New SUSHI Web Service

from Gale:

Farmington Hills, Mich., Nov. 4, 2008 – A new service dedicated to electronic resource usage reporting, in compliance with the Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative (SUSHI) Protocol and the Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources (COUNTER) Codes of Practice, is now available for Gale online databases. Gale is part of Cengage Learning.

“This service makes it possible for librarians to receive usage statistics for Gale databases using a SUSHI-compatible client,” said Mark Springer, manager of usage analytics and reporting at Gale. “Automating the retrieval of COUNTER reports saves time and makes it easier for our customers to collect usage statistics in an industry-standard format.”

Gale’s SUSHI service was released on August 14, 2008.

The usage reports delivered by the service are in compliance with Release 2 of the COUNTER Code of Practice for Journals and Databases.
