The service consolidates COUNTER-conformant statistics providing opportunities to demonstrate the value and impact of IRs:

  • facilitating comparable, standards-based measurements
  • providing an evidence base for repositories to develop policies and initiatives to help support their objectives
  • providing consistent and comprehensive statistics, presenting opportunities for benchmarking at a national level
  • developing a user community that will ensure that the service is responsive to user requirements
