(25 Mar 2022) Project COUNTER has a new multimedia website designed to help users navigate their educational resources. Whether new to COUNTER and looking for introductory materials or an experienced user looking for help with a specific question, the user journeys are a guide through getting started, journals and ebooks, platform and databases, and strategy. There is also a user journey designed specifically for content providers seeking to ensure COUNTER compliance.
The new site offers both videos and downloadable learning manuals and can be cross searched. Previously, videos were available on YouTube, but had low usage and were not integrated with other COUNTER resources.
Lorraine Estelle, outgoing executive director for Project COUNTER, approached Cadmore Media about designing a resource after being inspired by the NISO media library, another Cadmore-sponsored project. “It is great to end my time at COUNTER with the launch of our new Media Library. Librarians have told us that the want a ‘single place to go,’ for information, and this is now achieved.”
