Subject: [Lyroffers] IRUS COUNTER-5 Upgrade and Improved Interface

Hello All,
We are pleased to share the news that the IRUS<https://irus.jisc.ac.uk/irus-us/> (Institutional Repository Usage Statistics) service has officially upgraded to COUNTER Release 5 (R5). For those not familiar with IRUS, the service consolidates COUNTER-conformant statistics from repositories and helps to demonstrate their value and impact, both internally and in comparison with other institutions through a new public interface at https://irus.jisc.ac.uk/r5/uk/. The interface provides open access to the comparison of usage data from all participating institutions across the globe.
LYRASIS is partnering with Jisc, the national higher ed library membership association in the UK and the developer of IRUS, to create the U.S. based community of users, IRUS-US.
Features of the upgrade release:

  *   Supports ease of access and re-use of data
  *   Improves the website appearance and accessibility
  *   New flexible tools enables the user to specify the data needed for delivery in a range of formats to support understanding and analysis:
     *   View data onscreen or export data for use elsewhere (in CSV, TSV, JSON format)
     *   Data visualisation offers quick and easy access to view most used titles
     *   Summary level widget enables institutions to embed IRUS Release 5 statistics within their local website or systems
     *   API enables institutions to harvest data - both COUNTER reports and custom IRUS reports (including provisional daily statistics) - from IRUS for use within local systems
  *   COUNTER R5 conformant statistics enable recording of information about metadata views in addition to downloads of full text items (Investigations and Requests)
As mentioned above, the usage data is open access and can be viewed by any user. We encourage everyone to visit the site and experiment with the different reporting options.

The IRUS-US service is available for a yearly subscription fee. Please contact Hannah Rosen<mailto:hannah.rosen at lyrasis.org> for more information or to request a quote.

Thank you for your continued support of LYRASIS programs.
