  • Raptor is a free to use, open source software suite generally designed to enable accounting within event-based systems, and specifically aimed at accounting within systems that handle authentication events such as the Shibboleth IdP, OpenAthens LA, and EZproxy. The academic IT services community is the user community with the requirements that led to the development of this software, but it should be more generally applicable. The information that Raptor provides will enable institutions and individual Academic Schools to assess the best value and most useful e-resource subscriptions for their students and researchers.” People using Raptor can produce statistics on e-resource use whenever they are needed in as much detail as they require – for example, usage by an individual university department.
