Co-ordinated acquisition of electronic resources

COSEC is a member of the  EIFL international consortium. When acquiring electronic resources, the priority is given to titles acquired in co-operation with EIFL members, and to those suggested by the majority of Slovenian libraries.

The acquisition and management of the digital contents are directed by the COSEC Licensing Guidelines.

 

Reports on the use of electronic resources

To evaluate the use of e-resources, the international COUNTER protocol is applied. It requires:

 

  • Adoption of the standard Journal Report 1 when reporting on the use of e-journals: number of successful full-text articles requests by month and title of journals;

 

  • Adoption of the standard Book Report 1 when reporting on the use of e-books: number of successfully requested titles by month and book title. If books are not available in full text but in sections or chapters only, the Book Report 2 is used: number of successfully requested chapters by month and title of books;

  

  • Adoption of the standard Database Report 1 when reporting on the use of databases: number of searches (common and federated search), number of clicks on the search results and number of records viewed by month and by database.
