Book Report 2: Number of Successful Section Requests by


Month and Title (Full title and ISBN are listed.)

Sections: Each page downloaded while a user is accessing an eBook is called as a section, and the number 1468 sections refers to the total number of pages that was accessed by the users of a particular institution. These statistics provides the LIbraries and Publishers the demand for a particular Title.

Book Report 5, provides the client with the details of  searches run and the sessions opened.


Searches Run: This indicates the number of times a user searching for a particular title. This might be a single use who ran it 9 times or 9 different users who searched it individually.

Sessions : This refers to the number of times the book was opened. However, we give a time-out for all the sessions, i.e., if the user leaves the eBook idle for more 45minutes, the session is closed and when the user re-accesses it, a count is added in the session field.
