    360 Search: Including User-Limited Resources

    • Product: 360 Search

    Should I include resources with concurrent user limits in 360 Search?

    A usage session is opened at the time a search is issued to a particular database in 360 Search, not just when a user (patron) clicks into the actual results returned from that database. In addition, the session is kept open as long as the user is browsing the results from their searches.
    For this reason, we do not generally recommend the inclusion of databases with concurrent user limitations, as some users will be turned away; but of course, this is up to you to determine if you think the number of concurrent users will be a problem at your library.
