There is now another way for you to view your institution’s usage of the e-books for FE collection. JUSP (https://jusp.jisc.ac.uk) is an e-resource usage statistics portal run by Jisc that gathers standardised (COUNTER-compliant) journal, book and database usage reports from participating providers on behalf of libraries. JUSP then aggregates and presents data in a range of reports and visualisations through a single user-friendly interface.
JUSP has already gathered usage data on behalf of a number of FE colleges and this enables them to view standardised usage from ProQuest and other providers through a single interface.
What do I need to do to view my e-books for FE usage data in JUSP?
Jisc’s e-books for FE collection is hosted on the ProQuest Ebook Central® platform and subscribers already participating in JUSP will have been contacted directly by the JUSP team with instructions. If you have not yet responded and would like JUSP to start gathering your usage reports, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
