[SSP-L] NISO Webinar on SUSHI: Beyond Trial Into Real Use Cynthia Hodgson 09 Sep 2008 17:18 UTC
NISO will be offering a webinar on October 2, 2008 from 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. (eastern time) on SUSHI: Beyond Trial Into Real Use. *Description: * After a very successful trial use period, The Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative (SUSHI) Protocol was officially published as a standard in 2007 (ANSI/NISO Z39.93-2007). SUSHI defines an automated request and response model for the harvesting of electronic resource usage data, using a Web services framework. It is intended to replace the time-consuming user-mediated collection of usage data reports. The protocol was designed to be both generalized and extensible, meaning it could be used to retrieve a variety of usage reports. An extension designed specifically to work with COUNTER reports is provided with the standard, as these are expected to be the most frequently retrieved usage reports. This webinar will provide the latest information on using and adopting this extensible, lightweight standard. Ex Libris is generously sponsoring this webinar. *Intended Audience:* This webinar is for librarians, publishers, content providers, content aggregators, and ERM system providers who are interested in implementing SUSHI. *Speakers:* Adam Chandler (Coordinator, Service Design Group, Cornell University Library, and Co-Chair, SUSHI Maintenance Advisory Group) will bring a technical perspective and discuss the relationship between SUSHI and COUNTER and possible next steps for this standard./ / Hana Levay (Information Resources Librarian, Collection Management Services, University of Washington Libraries) will give a real-library perspective, sharing with the audience one example of how SUSHI was not only implemented at the University of Washington, but how it is being applied in a real way, including: * Setting up SUSHI (in this case, using III) * The kinds of reports being supplied via SUSHI * Common issues * Integrating usage statistics into collection development assessment tool via an ERM * Cost per use * Examples of how usage reports are being used in decision making *Information and Registration:* Please visit the event website (http://www.niso.org/news/events/2008/webinars/sushi) for more information and to register.
