Statistics

Acquiring usage statistics for the MeL eResources

Many sites require an administrative username and password to access your library's statistics. In order for statistics to be generated for your institution, you may need to be using either direct or customized URLs. The geo-IP URLs for the EBSCO eResources will also count towards a library's individual statistics, as long as the IP address is registered on the vendor end. Watch a recorded webinar new-window-icon.png on the MeL eResources statistics and view the vendor cheat sheet pdf-icon.png for further information. To register or report any additions or changes to your library's IP address, use the IP Reporting Form.

If you do not know your administrative username/password or have any questions, contact the MeL eResources Support Staff.
