ALERT: During a recent system upgrade to the Project MUSE platform, an error occurred which resulted in some underreporting of usage on COUNTER reports for the months of June and July. This error was quickly identified and corrected, however, COUNTER reports retrieved prior to the correction may not reflect complete usage numbers for library customers. If you retrieved COUNTER reports for your library’s June 2023 and/or July 2023 usage prior to September 5, either directly via our library dashboard or via automated SUSHI harvesting, we strongly recommend running new reports for these two months to ensure you have accurate usage statistics.

MUSE usage statistics reports may be obtained in either Excel or XML format, providing subscribing institutions with the flexibility to import their statistics into a variety of tools. MUSE supports reporting at the consortium level for acquisitions made via consortium subscriptions or purchases. A MUSE library dashboard account is required; log in using the yellow button on any of the library pages or create a new account.
