Abstract With the forging and making operational consortia subscription of E resources, beginning with journals, by various Academic and Government R and D organizations in the country, there is an immediate need to formulate standard metrics for the analysis of the usage of such resources. In the subsequent phase the outcomes of the analysis can be co-related against various parameters to develop performance measures as relevant to the consortium members. These performance measures can then be used to benchmark against the ‘leaders’ and action item for improving the average usage across the consortium. Ultimately translating into a justifiable ROI – not necessarily in money terms. Unlike in the physical subscription, such measurements and analysis is an intrinsic benefit in E subscription and must be fully utilized. This paper will generally discuss the utility of metrics , prevailing practices of a few E content providers and lay down broad parameters to serve as a basis for evolving a standard set of E metrics.
