ProQuest's Acquisition of SIPX Connects Libraries to the University Community

ProQuest—through its affiliate Bowker—acquired digital course materials solution creator SIPX. The company connects students to already-purchased materials that are available at the university library, thereby eliminating universities’ duplicate spending on course packs. It offers a simple solution for compiling, delivering, and managing digital reading lists. Faculty members and library staffers can use SIPX to set up course readings and automatically check for works that are available from the library, either from the library’s subscriptions or open sources.

“SIPX’s contributions to the Higher Education community align with ProQuest’s mission to connect libraries more deeply into the day-to-day research and education needs of students and faculty,” says Kurt Sanford, ProQuest’s CEO. “Its service enables universities to further leverage the investments their libraries have made in their research collections. With our support, customer relationships and investment, we will rapidly increase the availability and richness of SIPX’s services.”
