Agreement extends across all types of media, enabling researchers to access it digitally and in microfilm.

From its inception in 1908, The Christian Science Monitor has delivered comprehensive and meaningful coverage of global issues in a uniquely independent voice. With the long-standing agreement between the venerable news organization and ProQuest just extended through 2013, researchers of all types can continue to confidently support their work with access to coverage that isn’t influenced by corporate allegiances and pressures. The agreement extends across all types of media, enabling researchers to access it digitally -- in products such as ProQuest Historical Newspapers and Newsstand -- and in microfilm.

"The Christian Science Monitor is pleased to make available its rich content to libraries and researchers world-wide through ProQuest," said Norm Williams, General Manager, Content Sales, Global Markets. "We believe the Monitor's content -- which is known for being substantive, anchored in fact, balanced in viewpoint, consciousness-raising, and award-winning – is uniquely valuable to the library and research communities which appreciate high-quality, fair-minded, deep, contextual, and explanatory journalism."

"The Christian Science Monitor and ProQuest were both founded on the premise of providing authoritative content to a global audience," said Rod Gauvin, senior vice president and general manager for ProQuest Information Solutions. "We have a great deal of respect for original thinkers and innovators, especially those with a penchant for providing forums for independent and alternative voices." The Monitor’s founder, Mary Baker Eddy certainly qualifies. She launched her publication at the age of 87 after being provoked by Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World newspaper for her unconventional religious ideas. To this day, her mission "To injure no man, but to bless all mankind" continues to help shape the Monitor's journalistic ideals and news coverage.

The Christian Science Monitor doesn't cover the latest antics of Hollywood starlets or the meltdowns of heralded sports heroes. Rather, it intentionally avoids sensational stories in favor of more meaningful content as evidenced with their seven Pulitzer Prizes and 14 Overseas Press Awards. With embedded journalists in 11 countries, including Russia, China, France, the U.K., South Africa, Mexico, and India, as well as throughout the U.S., the Monitor is a renowned news organization that views itself as a public service rather than as an extension of its ownership – that of The First Church of Christ, Scientist.
