ProQuest and Accessibility

ProQuest is committed to providing an experience that is fully accessible to everyone. We work to ensure all site pages comply with web accessibility guidelines. This is an ongoing effort.


While designing product interfaces, we aim to conform with the following web accessibility standards and laws:

Features with Implications for Accessibility

ProQuest products may use or provide some or all of the following technologies or features.

PDFs and page images

Some products provide full-text content as scanned page images only. Others also provide full text you can select, copy, and paste. Both page images and text-based documents are delivered as PDFs, requiring that you have the Adobe Reader installed.

Inline images

Full-text documents may contain inline images such as photographs, illustrations, or graphs. A short caption normally appears beneath or alongside these items. Captions help make image content accessible to vision-disabled users.

Browser pop-up windows

Products may use browser pop-up windows to provide some types of content or support various user tasks. If you have a pop-up blocker activated, we recommend you disable it while using ProQuest products. ProQuest does not use pop-ups for marketing purposes.


Some products provide video content. You will need either the QuickTime Player® or the Windows Media® Player plug-in to view that content. Only a handful of products provide captioning and full transcripts.

Animated or Interactive Content

You may need to install the Adobe Flash Player plug-in to access animated or interactive content in some products.
