COUNTER has been developed to provide a single, international, extendible Code of Practice that allows the usage of online information products and services to be measured in a credible, consistent and compatible way using vendor-generated data. The COUNTER Code of Practice specifies: the data elements to be measured definitions of these data elements; usage report content, format, frequency and methods of delivery; protocols for combining usage reports from direct use and from use via intermediaries. The Code of Practice also provides guidelines for data processing by vendors and auditing protocols. In response to librarian demand, Release 1 of the COUNTER Code of Practice focuses on the usage of journals and databases, the products that account for the largest share of most libraries ’ materials budgets. Future releases of the Code of Practice will extend the scope of COUNTER, not only to other content types, but also to more detailed levels of reporting for each content type
