ProQuest is committed to providing an experience that is fully accessible to everyone. We make every effort to ensure that all ProQuest pages comply with Web accessibility guidelines.
Support services are available to accommodate the communication needs of end users with disabilities. Users can communicate with customer support via phone, chat, or Contact Us web form. Support services have experience working with end-users with disabilities.
Due to the scale and complex nature of ProQuest content and services, this is an ongoing effort. Let us know how we're doing. Contact Us with your questions or feedback.
