What’s Changing?

On October 3rd ProQuest’s PolicyFile database will move to the powerful, newly-enhanced ProQuest platform under the new name of Policy File Index. With its clean interface and responsive design, the ProQuest platform delivers a modern research experience that guides users' discovery, access and management of rich, diverse content sources. Policy File Index will be more discoverable as users will be able to cross-search its content along with scholarly journals, news and other relevant sources. It will continue to be available as a separate database but will also be included in ProQuest’s Politics Collection and Social Science Premium Collection.
