Serials Solutions takes the ProQuest Name
Serials Solutions has been a part of ProQuest since 2004 and now our name will reflect that relationship. We’ve recently expanded beyond our original mission of managing e-content and serving serials, so it’s time to update our name to one that encompasses all that we do. Today, most customers know us for our leading solutions such as the Summon discovery service, 360, and the new Intota Services Platform.
While you will see the Serials Solutions name change to ProQuest on business cards, email addresses, product information and other places, rest assured that our dedication to librarians, investment in product development and customer support are not changing.
