What types of usage statistics are available for EBSCOhost Integrated Search connectors?

In EBSCOadmin, the number of sessions, searches, and link requests for your EBSCOhost Integrated Search (EHIS) connectors, as well as the number of times end users open the detailed record are tracked.

Session and search statistics are available in the Database Level usage report. Each EBSCOhost Integrated Search connector records a search in EHIS as one search statistic in EBSCOadmin. Each time an end user does a search, all external resources selected record one search in EBSCOadmin.

Each time an end user opens a detailed record, a statistic is recorded under Abstract and each time an end user selects a Retrieve Item or Retrieve Full Text link for an external result, a statistic is logged under CustomLink.
