SUSHI (Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative) is an ANSI / NISO Standard that defines automated request and response model for harvesting e-resource usage data. CC-PLUS harvests reports using the The COUNTER 5 SUSHI API, in which the vendor provides a SUSHI-compliant server and the user runs client software to harvest the reports from the server.
KYVL is working to automate harvests in CC-PLUS for KYVL's SUSHI-compliant vendors -- Britannica, EBSCO, Gale and ProQuest -- for KYVL institutional members, which include school districts, public library systems, and colleges and universities. KYVL members wishing to automate harvesting of COUNTER 5 reports for other SUSHI-compliant vendors or at the school, branch or campus level may reach out to KYVL at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Required vendor data includes vendor name, SUSH endpoint and reports to be harvested. Sources of vendor SUSHI data include:
Institution-specific credentials are also required. These vary by vendor and may include one or more of customer ID, requestor ID, API key and requestor IP address.
Those wishing to test their settings may register to use the COUNTER R5 Validation Tool currently under development.
