The inaugural ProQuest User Summit is October 7-9 in Chicago. Register today and join us for this “can’t miss” event for Summon, Intota and RefWorks users! Bring a fellow librarian from the same university and receive a $50 discount for each additional attendee.
We have already received a number of suggestions on topics and librarians volunteering to present, but we need more ideas for topics and presentations! What would you like to learn, discuss, and share? We are soliciting ideas to build a compelling and worthwhile program for you.
Please consider presenting on a topic that tells fellow users what you are doing with our services at your library. Sharing good ideas is the foundation of community – what we are trying to build with this event. Topics should be what resonates with you: case studies, success stories leveraging ProQuest systems, panel discussions and more. Plus, presenters receive a $100 discount in their conference fee, so you can share your knowledge and help your budget at the same time. Help us make the User Summit a valuable experience for everyone.
We’d love to get as many ideas as possible from our users, so submit your ideas NOW! Don’t hesitate to send in a partially formed idea, we’re happy to work together to help you refine what topic you’d like to present on. Help us make the User Summit a valuable experience for everyone!

- Overview of How Intota v1 Can Meet the Needs of your Library Now
