Pubget Inc., and the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium (SCELC) are announcing today a partnership that will provide consortia-wide subscription usage statistics for SCELC members, making SCELC the first academic consortium in the world to provide in depth view of member consortia-sourced journal usage statistics.

Pubget is announcing today a new partnership with the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium (SCELC). Pubget has been selected by SCELC to provide consortia-wide subscription usage statistics for SCELC members.

Pubget has been providing content usage and spend analysis to both academic and corporate libraries for almost a year with its flagship serials analysis product, PaperStats. By using the PaperStats technology, SCELC will be the first academic consortium in the world to supply its members an in depth view of their consortia-sourced journal usage statistics.

"We're very pleased to have been chosen by SCELC," said Ian Connor, Pubget CTO. "This same fundamental technology has saved PaperStats customers time and money by optimizing their serials mix, and we hope to similarly assist SCELC members."

PaperStats automates the aggregation, updating and analysis of journal holdings and content data. Additionally, PaperStats tracks COUNTER compliant usage statistics and delivers cost-per-view statistics for scientific subscriptions.

"Our partnership with Pubget will allow us to provide our members with more insight into their institution's content usage," said Rick Burke, Executive Director at SCELC. "We are pleased to have identified a product, PaperStats, that will provide easy access to the harvesting and analysis of usage statistics and at an affordable cost for our libraries. This supports our goal of providing resource-sharing tools for our member libraries."

This program will be avialable to SCELC members soon. Further, PaperStats is available to both corporate and academic libraries.
