ProQuest One Literature Facilitates Broader Literary Research

ProQuest introduced ProQuest One Literature, a solution that supports all facets of literature study by bringing together a large and inclusive collection that has multimedia and multiformat resources (more than 3 million literary criticism citations; 14,000 dissertations; 1,300 videos, etc.), along with works by authors from marginalized communities as well as traditional Western writings dating from the eighth century.

“There’s a crying need for convenient access to texts representing a range of ethnicities and experiences from around the globe, as well as for tools to critically analyze those texts,” says Nick Okrent, a librarian at the University of Pennsylvania’s Van Pelt Library. “A platform with high-quality search functionality and extensive content—including relevant primary and secondary sources—will go a long way towards meeting this need. The idea of a product that synthesizes extensive literature content and leverages metadata to organize it rationally is an idea whose time has come.”
