COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) launched in March. Its mission is to develop a Code of Practice for the collection and exchange of data on the usage of electronic journals and other e-resources. It aims to have a draft code by the end of this year. COUNTER has the support of many important library and publishing groups, such as ARL, ALPSP, ARL, JISC, NISO, PA, and UKSG. (Thanks to Charles Bailey's Scholarly Electronic Publishing Weblog.)
