COUNTER Release 5 Foundation Classes

We are happy to share this news from the folks at Project COUNTER:

Librarians told us that they would like online tutorials and so we are creating a series of COUNTER Foundation Classes. Each online class runs for around 10 minutes and deals with an aspect of COUNTER usage data.  Tasha Mellins-Cohen provides the clear voice-over. Listen to Tasha explain metric types and reports:

Foundation Class 1: Metric Types
Foundation Class 2: Release 5 Reports

The next class in the series will describe how user actions are recorded in COUNTER Release 5 reports.  In the fourth class in the series Tasha will be talking about attributes, elements and other slightly techy things!


Accessible Archives Will Be at ALA Annual in New Orleans!

Accessible Archives, utilizing digital technology and a large team of conversion specialists, provides diverse primary sources from the 18th, 19th, and early 20th century, reflecting broad views across American history and culture – including: African American life, Women’s Suffrage, American County Histories, Colonial America, the Civil War, America in World War I, and much more. Our databases allow access to the rich store of materials — eyewitness accounts of historical events, vivid descriptions of daily life, editorial observations, and commerce as seen through advertisements — from over 200 years of leading books, newspapers, and periodicals then current. With our faceted search page, students, faculty, and librarians will go beyond just the facts and figures of American history and into a deeper understanding of their search topic.

Would love the opportunity to explore how Accessible Archives can best serve your needs and how we can make that happen!
