Enabling Serendipitous Discovery Through Access to the World’s Information Vault

For 75 years, ProQuest has built its expertise in preserving and widening access to significant research collections. We’ve partnered with an extraordinary range of organizations such as The British Library and the U.S. Library of Congress to bring to scholars’ desktops a portfolio of collections encompassing government, humanities, and historical documents that formerly may have been difficult to retrieve. Researchers will gain an all-around perspective of their topics with content ranging from official government documents to diaries, photographs, and financial records.
