  4. BePress • BePress stats are VERY complicated to gather. Go to the admin URL: http://www.bepress.com/cgi/myaccount.cgi • Login with the user ID and Password for each school. • Copy the URL for each school’s report and paste into the browser to get an “Open” or “Save As…” popup window. • Open the file in Excel, and make the following modifications: • Add a line above line one that says: BePress Usage Report (Arial, 14 point) • Bold & Italicize & color purple the next line (Full-Text Downloads….) • Delete the usage data for each title up to January of the current year (these reports keep data from the creation of any given university’s account), and then move the data for the current year to the left so that the January data is in Column B. • Resize Column A so that the full title of each Journal is viewable • Merge & Center these two header lines over the width of the report • Once finished, “Save As Web Page” naming by school & year, i.e. “famu_2005.html” • Repeat for each school. • Upload to FCLA website and transcribe total annual searches into the master spreadsheet.

  18. The “SPREADSHEET” ICOLC, Philadelphia, Newberry

  19. Automated COUNTER Harvester • Assumptions: • Data can be retrieved either via ftp or via html. If via ftp, only the address is needed. If via html, one or more pages may need to be traversed. • Design: • Each COUNTER source has a harvesting script associated with it. Each script is maintained in a separate file. • There is a COUNTER database that holds the retrieved data. It also holds COUNTER source information. ICOLC, Philadelphia, Newberry

  20. COUNTER Harvester Preliminary Design SOURCE Table: RESOURCES Table: STATISTICS Table: ICOLC, Philadelphia, Newberry

  21. COUNTER Harvester Preliminary Design • Scripts • Are XML documents that specify a set of actions to be performed and the information necessary to perform the action. • Comments are formatted as XML, i.e., <!-- ...-->. • Special characters must be escaped. ICOLC, Philadelphia, Newberry

  22. Example: Gale <CounterHarvesterScript> <debug/> <navigate>http://infotrac.galegroup.com/itconfig/fcla_000</navigate> <pause> 2 </pause> <navigate>http://infotrac.galegroup.com/itconfig/fcla_000?id=fclareports&amp;pass=fclareports </navigate> <pause> 2 </pause> <navigate>http://web6.infotrac.galegroup.com/infotrac_config/session/191/591/76110636w6/pg=ir!166&amp;ui3=CONSORT&amp;ui4=fcla&amp;ul=3&amp;un=0&amp;uo=9&amp;uiy=Y1&amp;uin=1&amp;uif=CSV&amp;uic=None&amp;uil=YES&amp;uim=markhi@ufl.edu&amp;uz=++Get+Report++ </navigate> <alert> Statisitcs will be sent by email to markhi@ufl.edu. </alert> </CounterHarvesterScript> ICOLC, Philadelphia, Newberry

  23. Problems encountered • COUNTER data is treated as secure data, so creation of a web-walking robot is problematic. • Session data must be extracted at some point in the session and then inserted into URLs to be sent later in the session. • Reporting periods are defined in columns, one column per period. The column headers must be walked, looking for Total YTD after the monthly data column(s). ICOLC, Philadelphia, Newberry

  24. COUNTER compliance is based on an Excel worksheet geared for human consumption, not computer processing. • The various reports don’t start reporting periods in the same column: • In Journal Report 1, periods start in column F • In Journal Report 2, periods start in column G • Institution name may be in a single cell row or a column • Some csv files have information that must be skipped: • Headings at the top of the sheet • Subtotal and total lines interspersed and/or at the bottom of the sheet ICOLC, Philadelphia, Newberry

  25. Counter Harvester Conclusion • COUNTER compliance is claimed by many but delivered by few. • In fact, as of this writing, we haven’t found a single csv that fully conforms. • Many are very different from the standard format. • Others, like EBSCO, are very close but since they are not exact, are still not ameniable to machine processing. ICOLC, Philadelphia, Newberry

  26. Hope for the future - SUSHI • The SUSHI schema needs more specificity,e.g.: • the format of dates is not specified in the schema but different date formats may cause different servers to reject the request or, worse still, to fail. • Integrating SUSHI and csv-based data: • In SUSHI, the reporting period is generalized with a start/end date. In the Excel-based standard, the column headings are of the form mm-yyyy. To place both into a common database requires normalization. ICOLC, Philadelphia, Newberry
