About the ProQuest Platform

The ProQuest platform makes hundreds of full text and A&I (abstract & index) collections accessible to researchers around the world. Content discovery is an integral part of the ProQuest platform’s goal of driving better outcomes for subscribing organizations and their users. An organization's ProQuest content is discoverable through Summon and Ex Libris Primo Central. You can also link to ProQuest from Google Scholar and PubMed . Plus, through the ebooks tab on the ProQuest results page, researchers can cross-search their organization's ProQuest ebook holdings (when available) alongside their ProQuest platform database content. Academic Video Online (AVON) subscribers can also now discover their video content while searching the ProQuest platform databases or even selecting to search AVON on its own within the ProQuest platform. 

In addition, researchers will benefit from robust information management and workflow tools and functionality integrated into the platform, like the ability to cite results in numerous citation styles, save as a PDF or other document formats, save searches, and export documents to reference management tools like RefWorks.
