The Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium (PALCI) in partnership with the Virtual Library of Virginia the University System of Maryland, the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium and California Digital Library will plan and pilot a modular open technology platform for the collection, display, and analysis of consortial library usage data. This project aims to increase consortia and libraries' economies of scale by further developing a community of interest in this area. It will increase collaboration on issues related to library usage data challenges, joint vendor problem resolution, and community-based technical development. The availability of a standards-based usage data platform for library consortia will result in libraries and consortia positioned to serve as exemplary stewards, empowered to make evidence-based decisions and better informed investments in electronic resources.
