Resource of the Month (ROTM)

Proquest Primary Sources

Sign up for the Lunch-N-Learn on November 6.


University Libraries recently agreed to purchase three years of access to over 70 primary source and video collections from Proquest across a broad range of subject areas and supporting programs and degrees in all colleges. The Proquest Lunch-N-Learn on November 6 is focused on the primary sources acquired from Proquest. A second event is planned for the spring that will focus on video resources. Some of these Proquest resources will be switched to perpetual access over the next three years based on how well they are used by our faculty and students.
