Usage Statistics Overview
June 04 2013 03:06 PM

Infobase eBooks offers usage statistics (or "stats", if you prefer) reports for administrators only. To access these reports, visit and log in using your administrator credentials. The reports can be found under the Usage Statistics tab.

The Usage Statistics page provides a quantitative report of your institution's  eBook activity. Usage statistics are generated for titles after one month of the title being in your account. Before then you will not see any usage statistics for recently added eBooks. Please allow a minimum of four weeks to check for usage statistics of recently purchased eBooks.
