The library anonymously tracks usage of electronic resources in order to understand what resources the MPC community uses and we make decisions regarding our subscriptions with that data. In order for the library to be able to track usage of our electronic resources, we need users to access them in their native platform. 

Using links not only helps the library accurately measure our subscriptions, it is also required by some license agreements that don't allow the re-distribution of content.
