The Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc. (PALCI) will continue to further develop and pilot the open source CC-PLUS (Cloud-based Consortial Platform for Library Usage Statistics) prototype software, and will develop the business models, infrastructure, and community awareness necessary to establish a production-ready usage statistics tool supporting consortia and libraries with data-driven decisions for effective stewardship of library content. PALCI will be partnering with North American and international library consortia as a part of this project. The prototype was completed in May 2018 and is now ready to pilot and enhance the software through the addition of E-book and database usage data, improving the user interface design, investigating journal title and package integration, and creating robust user documentation.
