Unrivaled Historical Collections, Accessible Wherever You Are

Uncovering new information from rarely seen original documents is what drives historical scholars—but accessing and working with those sources can be time-consuming and expensive. Since microfilming the early book archives of the British Museum in 1938, ProQuest has played a pivotal role in preserving and unlocking primary sources for scholarly use. We’ve partnered with an extraordinary range of organizations to provide access to global collections with significant research value—resulting in one source for complete coverage from the Early Modern Period to present day. Take a look at a sampling of the unparalleled resources from ProQuest.
