          I would say your best bet would be to try to follow the standards, in this case, COUNTER.

Hello. I work for a publisher and we are researching the feasibility of providing
usage statistics to our institutional subscribers. If anyone is willing and has
the time to either post a message to this list or send me a direct email with
your thoughts on what type of information you, as a librarian, would most like
to receive in a usage statistics report from a publisher, I would greatly
appreciate your assistance. Please include the type of information you need
as well as the format in which you need to receive it. Any other thoughts
would be beneficial as well. We don't currently provide usage statistics, but
since we are receiving more and more requests to do so, we obviously want to
provide that service if that is what our subscribers require.

Thank you in advance for your help.
