This webinar will help you:

* Understand the master reports which are at the core of Release 5
* Learn about the new metric types and additional attributes
* Find out about where to get support and guidance

Launched in 2002, COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) is an international initiative serving librarians, publishers and intermediaries by setting standards that facilitate the recording and reporting of online usage statistics in a consistent, credible and compatible way.
