Tomorrow afternoon (11/13) a team from ProQuest will be on campus to tell us more about some of the products we are considering licensing and to answer questions. A series of short sessions will be offered following the schedule below (note a few repeat sessions). They will also hold a drawing for two $50 Amazon Gift cards that they will give out at the end of the day.
These sessions are open to all — librarians, faculty, graduate students, etc. Anyone with an interest in learning more is welcome.
