To make tracking usage on a single account easier ProQuest has added usage groups. Your account has been set up with three default usage groups:
- My Research
You also have the ability to create your own custom usage groups to meet your institution's specific needs (e.g. different campuses).
When configuring authentication, you'll need to assign a specific usage group to each authentication piece to have usage tracked properly. For example, if you have one IP range for a law library that you want to track usage for separately, you'll need to enter that specific range and assign it to a custom usage group (e.g. law library). The remaining IP ranges would be assigned to the main usage group. These settings can be edited in your ProQuest Local Administrator Account.
Note: The ProQuest Local Administrator Program is for authorized library/institution personnel only. Please contact customer service if you do not have an account set up, or if you forgot your login information.
