Bloomsbury Publishing became COUNTER-compliant. The correct platform name in CELUS is now simply "Bloomsbury" and the credentials are the following:


Requestor ID: User contact e-mail

Customer ID: account number (six digits that you can find next to your profile name in the SAMS-SIGMA portal)

API key: generated API key starting with "bby::"

Original article:

Even though Bloomsbury Publishing is not officially COUNTER-complaint, you can obtain their reports via SUSHI with some extra effort. Bloomsbury is divided into sub-platforms that need to be managed in CELUS individually. Currently, CELUS is aware of the following Bloomsbury sub-platforms:

  • Applied Visual Arts
  • Arcadian Library
  • Architecture Library
  • Collections
  • Cultural History
  • Drama Online
  • Fashion Central
  • Food Library
  • History - Theory and Method
  • Human Kinetics Library
  • Interior Design Library
  • Medieval Studies
  • Professional Ireland
  • Theology & Religion

Please, let us know at if there is any sub-platform missing. 

How to set up SUSHI harvesting for a Bloomsbury sub-platform:

1. In SUSHI Management, click on "ADD NEW SUSHI" and choose the Bloomsbury sub-platform you want to set up credentials for:

2. You can see that the SUSHI URL and Platform filter are already prefilled for you. Fill in your SUSHI credentials as usual and verify them.


3. Repeat these steps for every Bloomsbury sub-platform you are subscribing to.
