On Thursday, November 13, a team from ProQuest will be coming to campus to tell us more about some of the products we are considering licensing and to answer our questions. ProQuest is calling this event “PQ Day,” but the good news for you is that you don’t have to spend a whole day! A series of short sessions will be offered following the schedule below (note a few repeat sessions).
These sessions are open to all — librarians, faculty, graduate students, etc. Anyone with an interest in learning more is welcome.
- Noon to 12:30: ProQuest History Vault & Historical Collections
- 12:45 to 1:15: ProQuest Historic Newspapers & Text Data Mining Overview
- 1:30 to 2:00: ProQuest Intota Overview
- 2:15 to 2:45: ProQuest e-Book Perpetual Access Collections (e.g., Pickering and Chatto)
- 3:00 to 3:30: ProQuest Social Science Databases (e.g., Digital National Security Archive, Periodicals Archive Online, and more)
- 3:45 to 4:15: ProQuest Historic Newspapers & Text Data Mining Overview (repeat)
- 4:30 to 5:00: ProQuest History Vault & Historical Collections (repeat)
All sessions will be held in 305 Wurster Hall. It’s a food-friendly room, and ProQuest is planning to bring in snacks, so come hungry and come curious!
