At their last meeting, the WPLC Digital Library Steering Committee voted to change the default lending period for new users from 7 days to 14 for both audio and ebooks.
This change has been made and will take effect immediately for new users.
At the Annual Membership meeting in May, usage stats during the pandemic for Wisconsin's Digital Library were shared. An update of those stats, through June 2020, has been compiled.
The WPLC has seen checkouts increased by 23% from February to a peak in April. While May and June checkouts are lower than April, they remain higher than before the pandemic.
Both new users and unique users have increased as well.
The full stats with charts can be found here.
