Everything That's Wrong with E-Book Statistics: A Comparison of E-Book Packages

2013 Accentuate the Positive: Charleston Conference 2012   unpublished
This poster presentation highlights the problems that exist in defining "a download" for e-books. Even though there is a COUNTER code of practice, a download can still be defined as either a page, chapter or title use. Many e-book publishers don't follow COUNTER at all, and then the differences are even bigger. Libraries face many problems because of this, and this poster aims to raise awareness on the problems concerning analyzing e-book usage statistics.
