Counter 4 Compliant Usage Reports

Accessible ArchivesAccessible Archives, Inc. and Scholarly iQ are pleased to announce that your Accessible Archives, Inc. usage data reports have been upgraded and are now using the new COUNTER Release 4 (R4) standards. These new COUNTER 4 reports are the latest set of usage reports that can be used by librarians to ensure the independent and accurate reporting of publishers’ usage statistics.

The COUNTER Release 4 standards contain the following new features and focus on improving the delivery of consistent, credible and comparable usage statistics:

  • A single, integrated Code of Practice covering journals, databases, books and reference works.
  • Enhancements of the SUSHI (Standardised Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative) protocol designed to facilitate its implementation by vendors and its use by librarians
  • A modified “Journal Report 5,” which reports on the usage of full-text article requests by year and by journal from a library’s acquired archival content.
  • Modified Database Reports, in which the previous requirement to report Session counts has been dropped, and new requirements, to report Record Views and Result Clicks, have been added. (Database Report 3 has also been renamed Platform Report 1).
  • Flexibility in the usage reporting period that allows you to specify a date range for your usage reports

COUNTER R4 Reports quickly and easily by visiting www.accessiblereports.com and entering your Accessible Archives, Inc. username and password to log in to the service.

Unlimited Priorities and NCSU Libraries Partner to Create Model Data Mining Agreement

Cape Coral, FL (March 24, 2015)Unlimited Priorities LLC, a firm specializing in support for small and medium-size companies in the information and publishing industries, and The North Carolina State University Libraries (NCSU Libraries), have collaborated to open up Accessible Archives’ databases for text and data mining for client libraries.

Text and data mining (TDM) encompasses dozens of computationally-intensive techniques and procedures used to examine and transform data and metadata. At its core, TDM uses high-speed computing technology to examine large data sets in order to recognize and model meaningful patterns and rules.

Unlimited Priorities orchestrated this initiative at the request of Darby Orcutt, Assistant Head, Collection Management, at The NCSU Libraries. Mr. Orcutt explained: “Through this model agreement, Unlimited Priorities and Accessible Archives have become even stronger partners with libraries in supporting the current and emerging needs of researchers. They quickly and positively responded to the opportunity for a win-win relationship in this area. Not only does this agreement open up large and high-quality historical datasets for mining by our users, but as scholars come to understand this content in ways that only such computational research makes possible, the value of these resources for academia correspondingly increases.”

Accessible Archives and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Enter Into a Publishing Partners Agreement

Malvern, PA (January 29, 2015)Accessible Archives, Inc., a publisher of electronic full-text searchable historical databases has signed an agreement with the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library to preserve in digital format a number of primary source collections relating to President Lincoln and the State of Illinois.  Once the materials have been digitized and made fully searchable, they will be available to genealogists, scholars, students, and those studying historical issues of personal interest as new databases by Accessible Archives.  This collaboration was coordinated through Unlimited Priorities LLC, a firm specializing in support for small and medium-size companies in the information and publishing industries.

Established in 1889 as the Illinois State Historical Library by the Illinois General Assembly, it later was renamed the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library to reflect its essential role in telling the story of Abraham Lincoln’s life.  The library holds an impressive collection of Lincoln materials, among them Lincoln family letters and a prized collection of Lincolniana and assassination materials.  In addition, the library contains the premier collection of materials on Illinois history, including myriad books, original maps and thousands of boxes of personal papers and other records relating to Illinois’ political, business, and cultural leaders.  The county history collection provides at least one history from each of Illinois’ 102 counties, which over time will become available through Accessible Archives.  The Library also stages exhibits that showcase its impressive historical holdings relating to all aspects of Illinois history, including an extensive Civil War collection and strong offerings on slavery and abolition, early settlement, church and community histories, and Illinois coal mining.

Kathryn M. Harris, Library Services Director, commented on the recently completed agreement: “The partnership that we have entered into with Accessible Archives will benefit not only the Presidential Library, but also genealogists, historians, researchers or anyone interested in Illinois or Lincoln history.  We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship!”

Tom Nagy, Accessible Archives COO, responded: “These unique materials will be a great addition to our historical offerings, both as stand-alone collections and as enhancements to those databases we have already.  Our initial commitment will be the conversion of the Illinois county histories as one of the final steps in completing our American County Histories collection which soon will cover the entire country.”
