ProQuest Information and Learning has announced the launch of five bimonthly enewsletters for librarians and database users. The free subject-specific ezines will hold case studies, research tips and tactics, content updates and more, designed to help librarians and researchers. ProQuest Information and Learning, a unit of ProQuest Company, creates and publishes databases for libraries and educational institutions worldwide.
Each enewsletter will focus on a single research arena: Business, History, Social Sciences and Humanities, Science, Technology and Medicine, and General Reference. ProQuest invites future readers to submit suggestions for article topics, experts to be considered for possible Q&As, and case study suggestions. The newsletters are designed to be authoritative, up-to-date, and provide helpful information on each research topic, as well as brief product updates and new content advisories. Issues will include special offers for enewsletter subscribers and a trivia contest with a $20 Amazon gift certificate as the prize. The forthcoming titles are scheduled to launch over the next two months, beginning with "Best Practices - Business" on December 3. History and SSH titles will follow in January 2004, with STM and General Reference enewsletters scheduled to debut in February 2004.
