Libraries can obtain an institutional-level admininistrative account from the following vendors. Using these accounts they can access information like usage stats, MARC records, interface customizations, title lists and more.
NC LIVE provides usage statistics for all of the following vendors (with the exception of ABC-CLIO) in our Usage Reports. However, if your library would prefer to obtain statistics directly from the vendor, or would prefer to use different metrics than NC LIVE uses, you can obtain individual accounts (see our Data Definitions for information about which usage metrics NC LIVE reports).
Individual Accounts Available
The following vendors/resources provide access to institutional-level administrative accounts for our members. NC LIVE member libraries may contact these vendors for access. Contact the NC LIVE Help Desk if you require any assistance.
