ProQuest, LLC acquired Expert Information Ltd., the U.K.-based publisher of Index to Theses and Theses.com, which provides citations and abstracts for British and Irish dissertations and master's theses. The addition will expand ProQuest's dissertations publishing program, which includes its graduate research resource, ProQuest Dissertations and Theses (PQDT). According to ProQuest, most North American graduate degree-granting institutions contribute their students' works to the PQDT database.
Expert Information abstracts and indexes more than a half million dissertations and theses, covering more than 70 years and growing by close to 20,000 records per year. Previously, Expert Information's content was available through ProQuest's PQDT: U.K. & Ireland product.
