ProQuest has a history of advocacy in support of libraries and its local communities around the world. In 2009, a team of volunteers at ProQuest responded to the American Library Association’s national call for a “Summer of Service” with a volunteer program to support local libraries. Since that time there has been tremendous engagement by employees and in the past year, more than 600 hours of work was dedicated to eight projects with Michigan-based organizations.
The company continues to foster a spirit of volunteerism and every employee is allowed two full paid days a year to volunteer for the program of their choice. To read more about the projects in 2012 for the "Live, Learn, Laugh, Love Your Library" program, read the press release.
