ProQuest Databases: Interface Updated

ProQuest, which searches a wide array of popular and scholarly sources in a variety of subject areas, has a new look.  The formerly red and white screen has switched to a softer blue and orange and it’s not only the color scheme that has changed.

Some of the existing and newer features include:

  • Select specific databases or cross-search databases across subject areas
  • Access to full text articles with links to similarly themed materials
  • Search primary sources, peer reviewed journals, dissertations, graphs, images and tables
  • Set up RSS feeds and alerts to receive updates on current literature in a particular field
  • Export citations to RefWorks and other citation managers, including sharing results via email and social networking links

The ProQuest platform will continue to provide the following eight databases, which can be searched individually or together:

  • Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts (LLBA)
  • New York Times (1980-current)
  • PAIS (including PAIS archive)
  • ProQuest Dissertations & Theses
  • ProQuest Research Library
  • Wall Street Journal (1984 -current)
