ProQuest : new plaform

One of the Library’s largest and most well-used electronic information providers is soon to launch a new platform.

ProQuest’s new platform will replace the majority of resources which we currently access from ProQuest, CSA or Chadwyck-Healey interfaces.

The new platform is available to use now, but the old platforms will be available until the end of June 2011.

There is online training on the new platform available directly from ProQuest – all members of the University can either view recorded sessions or take part in live training with specialist ProQuest trainers. For more information on training see www.proquest.com/training

If you use the personalised features My Research or My Archive on the old platforms, there is information about bringing these into the new platform here http://migration.support.proquest.com/display/4/kb/article.aspx?aid=2516

For further information, there is a ProQuest Migration Centre with FAQs and contact options: http://migration.support.proquest.com/

Alternatively, contact your Academic Support Librarian.

The new ProQuest platform coincides with the Library subscribing to some new journal content from ProQuest. More details to come in another post!
