15 Play Credits per Month
Wright Library patrons get 15 "play credits" per month.

Each video will use 1 play credit regardless of length. Users are provided with a set number of play credits in their account each month which will reset at midnight (Pacific Time) on the first day of each calendar month. Unused play credits will not roll over into the next month.
 
Using a play credit
To use a play credit, you must press play on a video and have the video play for at least 5 seconds. Once a play credit is logged, you will have a full 3 days (72 hours) to watch the video as many times as you would like without using another play credit, even if a new month starts and your credits reset.
