This webinar will offer a practical demonstration of JUSP, and will outline how the team is working with publishers to deliver usage statistics. It will also introduce the main benefits of the service for libraries.
During times of economic constraint, accurate and comparable usage reports are essential to fully understand the value of journal subscriptions. Built in response to demand from UK higher education libraries, the Journal Usage Statistics Portal (JUSP) enables librarians to access usage data quickly and efficiently, providing a single point of access for libraries to view, download and analyse their journal usage reports for the publisher deals to which they subscribe.
This session will offer a practical demonstration of JUSP, and will outline how the team is working with publishers to deliver usage statistics.
We will also introduce the main benefits of the service for libraries, for example:
It allows libraries to access a range of added-value reports to help them analyze usage and establish value for money to help in purchasing and renewal decisions.
It avoids the need to visit multiple publisher sites to download usage statistics
It allows libraries to quickly and easily compare usage across various publishers and years
It contains data from gateways and hosts to provide a truer picture of usage.
A crucial part of the JUSP development cycle is gathering user feedback and implementing suggestions. This session will illustrate how the results of ongoing qualitative research are informing portal development and will outline our future plans for this innovative service.

What will you learn or take away?
Delegates will recognise the time and cost saving benefits of using JUSP to manage their usage statistics.
They will gain an understanding of how to quickly and easily compare usage across publishers and years, and save time with aspects such as completion of their annual SCONUL returns
Delegates will be able to implement tools and techniques highlighted within the session within their own libraries.
The session will outline user driven developments and highlight opportunities to influence future plans
