ProQuest is excited to announce the next step in our journey to make content easier to find and access: As of August 05, 2020, we’ve enabled access to the ProQuest Platform from www.proquest.com
Now, you can tell your students and faculty to simply "Go to ProQuest” or “go to ProQuest.com” to access the library's ProQuest content. If users are authenticated, they’ll be able to access the library’s ProQuest resources right away. If not, they can search and preview content and will be prompted to authenticate. Open access content is still available to anyone without authenticating.
