Continual research improvement for your end-users … better workflows for you. ProQuest is committed to building the strength and value of libraries.

Last year we enhanced the ProQuest interface to wide acclaim (including the Charleston Advisor’s Reader’s Choice Award); we are currently modernizing several legacy products.

You can also enjoy improvements in many of our databases. An upgraded, streamlined product portfolio is available for new subscriptions.

As part of these upgrades, we are moving some libraries to our new portfolio with 2017 renewals. Exact changes for individual institutions are shown on your renewal notices.

New database names

Based on extensive customer feedback and research, we’re making database names clearer and more descriptive of their contents, making it easier for everyone to understand what’s in your collection. No changes are required from libraries, and there will be no changes to the research experience.
