ProQuest’s All-New Platform Will Redefine Search Experience

Jul 07, 2009

ProQuest's new platform, available in 2010, is expected to transform the company’s platforms into one unified search experience. The ProQuest, CSA Illumina, and selected Chadwyck-Healey products will be available on the new platform at launch, and all ProQuest products will migrate to the new platform over time. Its core is a single platform for all content, with a single content store, single search engine, and unified user experience. Users will be able to narrow in on the answers they need by searching across all content and a broad range of complementary sources, including leading journals, periodicals, news content, rare and archival information, dissertations, research reports, ebooks, and multimedia. For libraries, the unified platform will offer new administrative and reporting tools that provide flexibility in customizing the experience to their institution’s needs.
