Usage statistics are important as they allow Consortium members to derive useful metrics such as cost-per-use; make better-informed purchasing decisions; and plan infrastructure more effectively. As a member of Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources (COUNTER), the Consortium preference is for vendors to provide COUNTER compliant usage statistics.
