Library Dashboard automates the laborious task of collecting and comparing usage statistics across a library's electronic collection and provides easy-to-use data analysis and visualization tools to easily share the data with stakeholders.  This nimble service increases transparency around this data as it can be accessed on a regular basis to track usage trends.  Library staff will get a view of e-Content usage and see the data presented in terms of title, bundle, publisher and discipline.    This software allows libraries to see any turnaways; expiring subscriptions; decreasing usage as well as top sources of full-text usage by individual title or bundle. The pricing listed above includes an unlimited number of sources and an unlimited number of users of the service, which is continuously available, 24 hours a day. It is a proprietary, cloud-based, sole-source, software-as-a-service.


The core purpose of Library Dashboard is to harvest a customer library's COUNTER reports, ingest them into the Dashboard, aggregate and normalize them, and make the data available to that library 24/7 through an easy-to-use interface with data analytics and visualization tools.  These tools allow libraries to compare usage data and cost data across products, providers, disciplines. etc., and easily spot trends and changes over time.
