eSearch – Thursday 15 November 2007: busiest day to date

Thursday 15 November 2007 was the busiest single day for eSearch since the application was launched in January 2005. More than 2,000 separate sessions were recorded during the course of the day. A session is launched each time a customer accesses eSearch and is kept alive until the customer logs out or until there is five minutes continuous inactivity. Since the withdrawal of the subject portal and the A-Z database and ejournal lists from the LLR web site (an important component of the implementation of the LLR Resource Discovery Strategy) numbers of weekday daily eSearch sessions are regularly in excess of 1300.
