What is an Audio Pod Hour?
An Audio Pod Hour is an artificial unit of measure of time used to access audiobooks in the library.
One Audio Pod Hour may be redeemed for one or more hours of audio content.
Each audiobook has a number of Audio Pod Hours assigned that represents its Lending Fee, subject to the terms set by the copyright holder.
The Lending Fee is displayed on the detail page for each audiobook, and varies from one audiobook to another. Lending Fees are shown in decimal units of Audio Pod Hours. Where audiobooks are free, the Lending Fee will be shown as zero.
