ProQuest Announces Enhancements and New Linking Partnerships

ProQuest Co.'s Information and Learning unit has entered several linking partnerships and enhanced its OpenURL capabilities to allow users to move seamlessly between ProQuest databases and their other online resources—e-journal subscriptions, library catalogs, aggregator databases, document delivery services, linking resolvers, and more.  The OpenURL architecture at the core of ProQuest's initiatives supports linking from ProQuest to other resources and vice versa.

ProQuest announced new interface enhancements to its ProQuest Historical Newspapers product. Improved date range tools allow users to pinpoint issues more effectively from nearly every search screen. Other enhancements include: seamless searching of the entire backfile, which significantly simplifies broad searches; streamlined display of search options; and an improved help menu customized for users.

ProQuest also announced an enhanced American Periodical Series, with new historical periodical content and a new custom interface. In all, more than 50 titles spanning more than 1 million pages have been added to the database since August 2002. The process will continue until all 1,100 titles are complete in 2004.
