    • 3U: 3-user access model allow for three concurrent users only
      • UA - Unlimited Access model provides unlimited access. Any number of patrons can access UA titles concurrently for any number of days per year.
      • NL--Non-Linear Lending titles are not restricted to linear distribution - one patron at a time - but rather they can be lent to any number of patrons concurrently, up to the total number of annual loan days set for the title - usually 325. For example, if four patrons each trigger a ten day loan for the same title, 40 days are deducted from the title’s 325 loan days. If the combined number of loan days used exceeds the allotted annual loan days in a year, further uses are STLs toward an additional purchase. Loan days renew on the anniversary of purchase.
