Melissa will give a quick update on where the industry is right now with COUNTER 5, then reintroduce the open source COUNTER usage data harvesting tool she developed in 2019, but with an emphasis on how to use advanced Sqlite database tools to analyze the harvested data. She will then introduce a new open source program she has developed specifically for the ebook COUNTER reports to retrieve Library of Congress call number classifications, incorporate them into that or some other database, and use these tools in combination to analyze ebook usage and turnaway data for collection development purposes. Included will be a quick review of the COUNTER 5 metrics specifically for ebooks, what they mean, and best practice tips for using them.
