Multiplying the value of public library literary collections

The value to public library patrons of an exhaustive collection of literary works increases dramatically when coupled with tools that streamline searching and understanding. ProQuest’s online literature collection includes more than 350,000 primary works of prose, poetry and drama from the eighth century to present day. Tools enable both novice and seasoned searchers to quickly hone in on the precise information they seek. Essential to a well-rounded view of any topic is our integrated library of specialist journals, critical essays, major reference works, and literary indexes.
