Please post your replies to the list since I'm interested in knowing what
others are doing. Having just completed an agonizing couple of months trying
to pull use stats together for our databases for evaluation purposes, I can
tell you that it's not a lot of fun and the results are anything but

Does ANYONE out there employ the Counter standard and incorporate their
standardized statistics into a master Database Statistics
spreadsheet/dbase for local "profiles"?

I am extremely interested.

Establishing a practical institutional profile of statistics is
essential to management of eresources for the serials unit. Our interest
in particular is in tracking tends over the course of product
implementation for budget justification purposes.
