EBSCO Information Services Logo

EBSCO Information Services is a leader in providing content, services, and software to libraries at all levels around the world, from public and school libraries to academic research libraries and medical and health libraries. We employ experts in information resources and technology to provide the best content and develop superior technology to meet all users’ information needs. Our mission is to change lives by providing the most relevant information when, where, and how people need it. Assessing how library patrons are using information and the outcomes of that usage is of utmost importance to you as librarians. To that end, EBSCO is continually advancing the art of library analytics by providing advanced usage reporting for content, software that improves the collection and analysis of usage, and embarking into new areas of library and learning analytics.



OCLC is a nonprofit global library cooperative providing shared technology services, original research and community programs so that libraries can better fuel learning, research and innovation. Through OCLC, member libraries cooperatively produce and maintain WorldCat, the most comprehensive global network of data about library collections and services. Libraries gain efficiencies through OCLC’s WorldShare, a complete set of library management applications and services built on an open, cloud-based platform. It is through collaboration and sharing of the world’s collected knowledge that libraries can help people find answers they need to solve problems. Together as OCLC, member libraries, staff and partners make breakthroughs possible.




Emerald Publishing was founded in 1967 to champion new ideas that would advance the research and practice of business and management. Today, we continue to nurture fresh thinking in applied fields where we feel we can make a real impact.  Closely aligned to the evolving Library Science field, our interdisciplinary and outward-looking Library Studies portfolio features research intersecting with Information Systems, Information Science and Education.  Emerald manages a portfolio of around 300 journals, more than 3000 books and over 1,500 teaching cases.




Our online tutorials will help you get the best from COUNTER Release 5. All the Foundation Classes are available on YouTube and each takes around 10 minutes. The classes explain the new metrics and reports and how to use the Database, Book and Journal reports in decision making. Find them on the COUNTER YouTube channel.
