*International Symposium "Academic Online Resources: *

*Assessment and Usage"*

*Lille (France), 26-27 November 2009 (http://epef.anr.free.fr) *
*Charles de Gaulle University Lille 3* *GERIICO laboratory ? SID team*

First announcement and call for papers

The evaluation of academic online information resources through usage
assessment accompanies their integration into academic libraries. The
associates librarians, publishers, vendors and scientists into a common
discussion on resource management, evaluation, research and theoretical

Between 1998 and 2008, the work on usage assessment advanced in several
ways. The COUNTER Codes of Good Practice are to become international
standards and facilitate the recording and reporting of online usage
statistics in a consistent, credible and compatible way. Regularly revised
and updated, they are built upon common definitions of collected usage
statistics. Vendors and service providers offer tools and services for the
management of usage data, compliant with the COUNTER standards. Libraries
develop local software for usage assessment. Especially in the UK, results
from a new type of usage research based on the weblog analysis have been
published. These studies provide an accurate knowledge about who uses
when and how.

The symposium aims at highlighting the frontline research of library and
information scientists and LIS professionals and at getting a large and
precise understanding of online information usage assessment and to
the challenges.

The symposium is also a forum to compare and debate on different
and methodological approaches. The invited communications should cover the
whole range of questions related to the evaluation of online information
resources in academic and research environments ? e.g. economical,
political, scientific, documentary aspects and so on.
