New ProQuest Contract
On May 5, 2011, the Washington State Library and the Statewide Database Licensing Project and its Advisory Committee announced that ProQuest had again been selected to provide a suite of database products to the nonprofit libraries of Washington State. The package includes a periodicals collection, a collection of Washington and national newspapers, and resources for children and students.
A complete listing of the content in the new ProQuest package is available along with links to detailed descriptions of the individual components on the ProQuest Package Product Descriptions page.
Access to ProQuest Databases
Almost every nonprofit library in Washington State has the opportunity to license the ProQuest database package through the state contract at a deeply discounted price that saves significant dollars throughout the library community.
Note: K-12 schools/libraries should contact their representative ESD for information on participation. Other libraries should contact the State Library SDL Project staff.
New ProQuest Platform
ProQuest has rolled out its new search platform for their products. Washington libraries received new platform migration toolkits via mail. For more information, visit the ProQuest platform migration web site.
