    Report Data Source Notes
    Book Requests and Costs TR_B1 

    This report calculates cost per use (CPU) using the cost information entered into 360 Client Center or Intota and the TR_B1 Unique Title Requests metric. 

    • Unique Title Requests: The number of times an ebook was accessed in a single patron’s session. If a single user downloads multiple chapters from an ebook, or accesses the ebook several times during a session, all of these would count as 1 unique title request. 

    Book Access Denied



    Reports on “Access Denied” activity for books where users were denied access because simultaneous-use licenses are exceeded or the library doesn't have a license for the book.

    Choose to view denials by Limited Exceeded reason, No License reason, or both.
