ProQuest Dialog Launches With Enhanced Features

ProQuest, LLC debuted its revamped Dialog service at the Special Libraries Association conference on June 10. It has a new name, ProQuest Dialog, and new features: The more than 1 billion documents on the service are now available for anyone to search using more precise and intuitive search modes.

Dialog’s upgrades also include the removal of “pricing barriers to search and browsing and [it] also supports document sharing within R&D workflows, enabling more users to participate in mission-critical projects,” says Tim Wahlberg, ProQuest senior vice president and ProQuest Dialog senior manager. Payment plans now have transactional and subscription packages. Users no longer need to be trained to use ProQuest Dialog; searchers at any skill level can use the service.

Customer support will not change—customers will still be able to have search consultations, alert set up, technical support, and specialized training.

Dialog will begin the transition to ProQuest Dialog in July, and the original service will be retired at the end of 2013. At the Migration Center, the support team will import existing Dialog accounts into ProQuest Dialog, and when that is finished administrators will be able access their accounts. “Dialog customers can begin preparing for migration now by reviewing and requesting cancellation for any user IDs or bill-tos that are no longer required,” according to the website.
