ProQuest primary sources are second to none.Download the Infographic
Faculty and students are using a variety of resources in research, teaching and learning – including primary sources, books, dissertations and more. Faculty overwhelmingly see value in students using a wide variety of resource types in their studies, such as government documents, archival collections, periodicals, newspapers, data, books, video and more, and not only say it aids in understanding of a subject, but it contributes to better quality assignments and grades. But most importantly, they believe primary sources help students develop critical thinking and other key skills.
ProQuest can help every library – regardless of size or budget – build primary source collections that have both scope and affordability. Our collections are second-to-none – in size, years of coverage, subjects and resource types – and our buying models offer extraordinary flexibility and value.
