ProQuest Updates Its Platform to Improve Discoverability of Library Resources

ProQuest announced that it “is improving the accessibility of subscription and open access content on its award-winning platform with a series of enhancements designed to boost research, teaching and learning outcomes. … These enhancements are a major step toward improving discoverability, simplifying access for distance learning, and driving more users to their library’s subscribed content.” Now available automatically for ProQuest users, they include the following:
  • A new starting point for research: Now, users can begin their search from the open web by visiting search.proquest.com. Through their search results, they’ll be delivered straight to the resources their library subscribes to.
  • New preview feature: Users can search, find and preview the content of nearly a billion ProQuest documents directly from the open web for better discoverability.
  • Broader discovery of open access content: Researchers can access an ever-expanding universe of scholarly full-text open access sources directly—all indexed and delivered with the same level of quality and precision as ProQuest’s subscription content.

“We know that many users, especially undergraduates, start their search on the open web,” says Chris Burghardt, ProQuest’s VP of product management. “These enhancements increase access points and expose students, faculty and researchers to their library’s resources, ensuring that they never miss what they’re looking for.”
