Usage box

You can then select your start and end dates, and the specific metrics you would like to view for that time period.

Sessions count the number of individual times a user has accessed PQ Research Companion. This is not individual to the user, but rather the number of times they have connected to the database, even if it's multiple.

Video Views display the individual views a video has received, which can be further broken down by the specific modules that video resides in. The Views by Format shows whether or not a user viewed the video itself, or the transcript of the video, and the Views by Location displays whether the view was on the PQ Research Companion platform, or from the video being embedded on an external page, such as a LibGuides page or LMS like Canvas.

Tool Uses count the individual use of different tools available in PQ Research Companion, including the Search Aid, Source Evaluation Aid, Citation Builder, and Revision Aid.

Unfortunately, PQ Research Companion does not have COUNTER usage available. Please contact us if you have any other questions.
