Need to pull content from your ProQuest Dialog searches and alerts into your own applications? There’s an API for that!
Organizations that subscribe to the ProQuest Dialog professional search service can use our new application programming interface (API) to take select content from their favorite biomedical, engineering, news and trade, and patents databases – and feed it into internal or third-party tools.
The API works with tools like SharePoint, intranets, and analysis or visualization programs. It’s based on standards for APIs, and retrieves content in ProQuest Dialog’s XML format.
“An API is something many of our customers have requested since the migration from Dialog to ProQuest Dialog in 2013,” said Audrey Marcus, ProQuest vice president, product management. “We’re thrilled to be able to provide them with this resource, which will allow organizations to use our content in a way that’s completely customized for them.”
The API is currently available to both current and new ProQuest Dialog subscription customers, and we’re working on additional developments and enhancements that will be released over the next few months. You can find general information on the API here, and more detailed resources for developers here (you can even try it before you buy it!). And API customers receive comprehensive training and support during the implementation period and beyond.
If you’re interested in learning more about our API, contact your account manager or fill out this simple form and we’ll be in touch soon.
