ProQuest Completes Acquisition of Coutts Information Services 
and MyiLibrary 
As the stage is set to create integrated print and digital workflow, ProQuest commits to a smooth transition for customers and partners.
ProQuest has completed the acquisition of Coutts Information Services and MyiLibrary from Ingram Content Group. ProQuest is beginning to integrate assets such as Coutts’ expertise in collection development, broad catalog of print and digital titles, and platforms that include not only MyiLibrary but OASIS as well. They are being added to ProQuest’s Books unit, which encompasses the widest selection of ebooks supporting research and a rapidly evolving technology framework for discovery, access and management of book content. ProQuest’s vision is to combine these collective strengths, creating an integrated workflow for print and digital content that will save librarians time and provide a superior book experience for end users. 
Customers and partners can expect a seamless transition as ProQuest welcomes Coutts; both should continue to work with their usual contacts and representatives. Further, the company is committed to keeping the Coutts and ProQuest networks open, collaborating with the many platforms and partners that give librarians choices in how they acquire and manage content. ProQuest is continuing to support EBSCO content just as ProQuest Ebooks remain on YBP’s GOBI. ProQuest’s ebook initiatives remain on track as well, with the debut of ProQuest’s powerful new Ebook Central just a few months away.
Coutts staff members in the U.S., U.K., the Netherlands, Canada as well as sales and collections associates located remotely are joining  the ProQuest team, led by Kevin Sayar, ProQuest senior vice-president and general manager, Books. Ingram remains a strategic partner, providing print fulfillment in North America, with its extensive print inventory, fast, on-demand print capabilities and delivery network.
