    Managing COUNTER-Compliant Usage Data

    Translatable
    Alma can collect and report on electronic resource usage statistics information supplied by content providers in COUNTER format. With access to these reports, librarians have more options for analyzing and understanding usage within their institutions. COUNTER reports may be presented in a variety of formats in Alma Analytics, as well as in specific cases in the Alma user interface.
    COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) compliant usage statistics is explained here: https://www.projectcounter.org/.
    Many vendors can provide COUNTER statistics for your institution's users' usage. In some cases, you receive this information in a file and upload the information to Alma manually. In some cases your vendor supports the SUSHI protocol (Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative), which allows Alma to automatically retrieve (harvest) and upload the data automatically. For more information about SUSHI, see http://www.niso.org/workrooms/sushi/.
    Support for COUNTER 5 and SUSHI lite is on the Alma Roadmap. Ex Libris is closely following developments in the industry regarding these protocols and will incorporate them into Alma in a timely manner, as the industry develops. We are aware that COUNTER has stated that “In January 2019, all publishers and vendors are required to comply with the new Release of the Code of Practice” and Ex Libris product management is therefore closely following all developments.

    COUNTER Report Types

    COUNTER usage data is provided in many different prepackaged types (reports). Alma supports the following types (as of May 2017), depending on the COUNTER release version and method of entering the data. In the description, platform refers to the vendor interface.

    User Roles Summary

    Users with the following roles can perform tasks related to COUNTER compliant user statistics:
    • Acquisitions Administrator - Configure COUNTER subscribers and activate, deactivate, or manually run the automatic harvesting job.
    • Vendor Manager - View usage data related to a particular vendor, manually harvest data for the vendor, manually upload data for the vendor, and manage any uploaded data files.
    • Usage Data Operator - Manually upload or delete data for any vendor, manage the uploaded data files, and view missing COUNTER data.
    • General System Administrator - Activate, deactivate, schedule, or monitor the automatic harvesting job, view the job's history, report, and events, and configure email notifications for the job.

    Configuring COUNTER Subscribers

    To configure COUNTER subscribers, you must have the following role:
    • Acquisitions Administrator
    In nearly all cases, an institution has one subscriber which is the name of the institution. In these cases, there is no need to coordinate anything with the vendor regarding your institution's subscriber name.
    In rare cases, an institution has multiple subscribers. This is used as an additional means of filtering data in Alma Analytics. To effectively use multiple subscribers, your institution must coordinate with the COUNTER vendors to send separate reports for each campus, according to the IP address ranges of the campus that accessed each electronic resource. In these cases, your institution adds multiple subscribers to Alma and uploads each report using the relevant subscriber.
    Alma requires you to define at least one subscriber. This documentation assumes that you define only one subscriber.
    When you manually upload a data file, the file is considered new data if several key fields are different (vendor, dates, etc), including subscriber. Uploading the same data file a second time overwrites the data from the first upload. If you change the subscriber in the data to a different, valid subscriber, the data is uploaded as new data.
    You configure subscribers on the Subscribers code table (Configuration Menu > Acquisitions > General > Subscribers). For more information about code tables, see Code Tables.
    Subscribers Code Table
    As noted above, you must configure at least one subscriber.

    Managing SUSHI Accounts

    To configure SUSHI accounts, you must have the following role:
    • Vendor Manager
    SUSHI accounts enable Alma to automatically retrieve COUNTER reports from vendors. You create a SUSHI account for each vendor and for each report type; a single vendor may require multiple SUSHI accounts, one for each report type.
    You do not have to create a SUSHI account to retrieve COUNTER data from a a vendor. Whether or not you configure a SUSHI account for a vendor, a vendor can provide you COUNTER data by some other means for you to upload manually to Alma.
    You manage SUSHI accounts on the Usage Data tab of the Vendor Details page (Acquisitions > Acquisitions Infrastructure > Vendors, select Edit in the row actions list for the vendor and select the Usage Data tab).
    Vendor Details - Usage Data Tab
    To add a SUSHI account:
    While the procedure below indicates that you should add the account for a vendor on the Usage Data tab of that vendor, in fact you can add an account for any vendor on the Usage Data tab of any vendor. The vendor that is contacted by the SUSHI job is determined solely by the URL and other information you add when configuring the account, not the tab on which you enter the information. Nevertheless, Ex Libris recommends that you add the account for each vendor on the Usage Data tab of that vendor, for organizational purposes.
    For vendors that are actually subscription agents for other vendors (access providers or publications), each report type from each access provider or publication requires an additional SUSHI account for each access provider or publication; multiple reports from the same vendor require multiple SUSHI accounts.
    1. Ensure that a subscriber was defined for your institution. See Configuring COUNTER Subscribers.
    2. Select Add. The SUSHI Account Details page appears.
      SUSHI Account Details Page
    3. Enter the vendor name in SUSHI Account.
      After you enter three letters in this field, a drop-down list of SUSHI-certified vendors appears (this list is predefined by Ex Libris; see SUSHI-Certified Vendors). If you select any of the vendors from this list, Vendor URL is prefilled with the correct URL for the vendor (other information may also be prefilled). However, you do not have to select a predefined certified vendor; you can enter any value you like.
    4. Enter the URL in Vendor URL and select a subscriber in Subscriber.
    5. Enter contact information in Contact Information. Typically, this will be a URL or email account of the vendor.
    6. Enter the required credentials in the Request Details area. Some information may already be prefilled; your vendor will supply you with the required information for this area. For information on special cases, see SUSHI-Certified Vendors, below.
    7. Select the Report Type.
    8. To test the connection, select Test Connection. If there is an error, an error message appears at the top of the page. In this case, you may want to select Test Connection with Response to view a Zip file containing both the SUSHI request and response packages (in XML) sent to/from the vendor. These packages may help you debug the connection.
    9. Select Contribute to contribute a SUSHI account to the Community Zone.
    10. When you are done, select Save. The account is saved and appears in the Usage Data tab.
    You can delete the account by selecting Actions > Delete in the account row on the Usage Data tab.
    On the Search Vendors page (Acquisitions > Acquisitions Infrastructure > Vendors), you can filter the table to display only SUSHI-enabled vendors by selecting SUSHI Vendor in the Vendor Type filter. Note that a vendor may be SUSHI-enabled even if it does not have a SUSHI account.

For institutions currently setting up Alma SUSHI accounts while still working in UStat (customers still implementing Alma), contact Elsevier customer support to ensure that your SUSHI-ALMA account is active. For these customers, Test Connection does not work for Elsevier, because Elsevier supports only one active account per institution and the UStat account is still active.

    Managing SUSHI Harvesting

    To manage the SUSHI harvesting job, you must have one of the following roles (see below for details):
    • Acquisitions Administrator
    • Vendor Manager
    • General System Administrator
    By default, the SUSHI harvesting job harvests all COUNTER data from all active SUSHI accounts. The job runs some time between Friday evening and Saturday morning, depending on your time zone.
    The actions you can perform depend on your role.
    • As an Acquisitions Administrator, you can activate, deactivate, or schedule this job, or run it manually.
    • As a Vendor Manager, you can run the job manually for a single vendor account and view a history of how often this was performed.
    • As a General System Administrator, you can activate, deactivate, schedule, or monitor the job, view a job's history, report, and events, and configure email notifications for the job on the Monitor Jobs page. For more information, see Viewing Scheduled Jobs. Viewing Running Jobs, Viewing Completed Jobs.
      • PR1 reports should have the following data in cells 1B and 1C:
        • Cell 1B - Total Searches, Result Clicks and Record Views by Month and Platform
        • Cell 1C - empty
        In some cases, vendors have sent PR1 reports with the following (incorrect) data in cells 1B and 1C:
        • Cell 1B - Total Searches
        • Cell 1C - Result Clicks and Record Views by Month and Platform
        The SUSHI harvesting job reports an error in this case. If you see an error is the job report, check the report sent from the vendor. In the above case, correct the data and then manually upload the report; see Manually Uploading and Deleting COUNTER Data.
      • Before uploading, Alma checks whether overlapping data exists in the database, according to a unique combination of owner code (constructed from the customer ID and institution ID), subscriber, platform, publisher, measure type, and date. If you also harvest using a portal such as JUSP, you may have a potential data duplication issue because the owner code is different and the data is therefore not recognized as duplicate data. 
    To manage the SUSHI Harvesting job as an Acquisitions Administrator or General System Administrator:
    On the Acquisitions Jobs Configuration Page (Configuration Menu > Acquisitions > General > Acquisition Jobs Configuration), perform one of the following actions in the SUSHI Harvesting Job area:
    Acquisition Jobs Configuration
    • To deactivate the SUSHI harvesting job, select Inactive or select Not scheduled for SUSHI harvesting job schedule.
    • To activate the SUSHI harvesting job, select Active and select a valid scheduling option in SUSHI harvesting job (currently the only valid option is Every Saturday at 03:00).
    • To run the job immediately, select Run Now.
    To manage the SUSHI Harvesting job as a Vendor Manager:
    On the Usage Data tab of the Vendor Details page (Acquisitions > Acquisitions Infrastructure > Vendors, select Edit in the row actions list for the vendor and select the Usage Data tab), perform one of the following actions:
    • To run the job immediately for a vendor account, select Harvest Now in the row actions list and select Confirm in the confirmation dialog box.
    • To manage reports received from the vendor, select View, Download, or Delete from the row actions list.
    • To view a history of these account-specific job runs, select View History in the row actions list. The SUSHI Harvest History page appears.
      SUSHI Harvest History
      Select File Details in the row actions list to see the report or response from the vendor. You can download the file by selecting Download. You can download the file even if it was deleted (on the Usage Data tab of the Vendor Details page or the Uploaded Files tab of the Usage Data Loader page).
      SUSHI File Details

    Manually Uploading and Deleting COUNTER Data

    To manually upload COUNTER data or manage this data after it was uploaded, you must have one of the following roles (see below for details):
    • Usage Data Operator
    • Vendor Manager
    A vendor can send you COUNTER data to upload manually to Alma. The data that you upload must be in one of the following formats: xlsx, xls, csv, txt, or tsv. For some report types, you can also manually upload data in xml format (see COUNTER Report Types).
    A Usage Data Operator can upload data for any vendor and manage all uploads on the Uploaded Files tab of the Usage Data Loader page (Acquisitions > Import > Load Usage Data).
    Usage Data Loader, Uploaded Files Tab
    A Vendor Manager can upload data and manage uploads for a single vendor at a time on the Usage Data tab of the Vendor Details page (Acquisitions > Acquisitions Infrastructure > Vendors, select Edit in the row actions list for the vendor and select the Usage Data tab).
    Before uploading, Alma checks whether overlapping data exists in the database, according to a unique combination of owner code, subscriber, platform, publisher, measure type, and date (the owner code in Alma is built out of the customer ID and the institution ID). If data is considered duplicate, the following notification message is displayed: Continue with the upload will delete the old data - Are you sure you want to continue? If you continue, the old data is overwritten by the new data. In the case of a SUSHI harvest (where the data is not uploaded in a manual manner and therefore no message appears to the staff user), the duplicate data is automatically overwritten.
    Error messages are included when using the manual load (XML format) for report types beginning with BR. Records with an error are not loaded.
    After uploading the data, the operator/manager can perform the following actions:
    • View information about the file and the imported data (View).
    • Download the file (Download).
    • Delete the file and its imported data (Delete).
    A Usage Data Operator can also delete data according to its file ID on the Delete Usage Data page (Acquisitions > Import > Delete Usage Data). This is helpful when usage data was migrated to Alma and appears (with its file ID) in Analytics.
    Delete Usage Data Page
    To manually upload COUNTER data:
    See the note about errors in PR1 reports from some vendors in Managing SUSHI Harvesting. If you see this error in a PR1 report, manually correct the report before uploading it.
    1. On the Uploaded Files tab of the Usage Data Loader page (as a Usage Data Operator), or on the Usage Data tab of the Vendor Details page (as a Vendor Manager), select Upload File and enter the following.
      • Vendor (Usage Data Loader page, only) - The vendor associated with the uploaded data. Note that the vendor does not have to be a SUSHI vendor.
      • Upload File - Browse for the file to upload.
      • Subscriber - Select the subscriber.
    2. Select Upload File. The file is uploaded and the data imported into Alma. Information about the file, including its status, appears in the table.
    To manually delete COUNTER data according to its file ID:
    On the Delete Usage Data page, enter the file ID and select Delete File and select Confirm in the confirmation dialog box.
    A Delete Usage Data job runs. See Viewing Completed Jobs for information on monitoring the job and viewing the report.

    Viewing Missing COUNTER Data

    To view missing COUNTER data you must have the following role:
    • Usage Data Operator
    You can view missing COUNTER data by subscriber, platform (vendor interface), report type and measurement, and month on the Missing Data tab of the Usage Data Loader page (Acquisitions > Import > Load Usage Data; select the Missing Data tab). Contact your vendor for any missing information.
    Usage Data Loader, Missing Data Tab
    Select a year or report type and measurement using the filter drop-down lists (Year or Measured By, respectively). Any year for which you have at least some COUNTER data appears in the Year filter.
    The columns on this page include:
    • Subscriber
    • Platform
    • Measured By - Report type and measurement. If you do not select anything in the Measured By filter, all report types and measurements appear.
    • Jan .. Dec - Only the months of the year selected in the Year filter appear. A green checkmark indicates that there is data, a red exclamation point indicates missing data.
