Abstract:   The usage of e-resources is one of the most important parameters to judge effectiveness of a consortium. Manual downloading and analysis of usage statistics is a time-consuming process for a consortium like UGC-INFONET Digital Library Consortium having more than 180 core members. COUNTER and SUSHI standards have the potential to ease the work of a consortium administrator by minimizing the time involved in manual downloading of usage statistics allowing more time for analyzing the usage statistics for better decision making. The article gives a brief of the implication of SUSHI for creating a usage statistics portal at the INFLIBNET Centre for monitoring the usage of the member universities.
