Admins: What counts as triggerable usage

Any of the following usage will trigger a PDA eligible title for STL or purchase:

  • Viewing, either:
    • 10 pages viewed (unique pages) in a single browser session (other than front or back matter*), or
    • 10 minutes of viewing in a single browser session (other than front or back matter*)
      • Note:
        • Viewing time is counted between page turns
        • If the time between page turns exceeds 3 minutes, it is counted as just 1 minute
        • Leaving a book open to a page for more than 10 minutes then closing the book will not cause a trigger
  • Printing: 1 print of any page, or
  • Copying: 1 copy from any page, or
  • Downloading: 1 download of any page (note, a title on loan cannot be full-document downloaded)

*Front matter and back matter are defined as the first 5% and the last 5% of a document’s pages.
