ProQuest unveils new look

January 31st, 2012 No comments

ProQuest has just rolled out an upgrade to its popular website. The new start page is cleaner and easier to use. No longer do you have to select from a long list of databases to search. You can search everything at once from one search box, or choose by topic.

ProQuest is a great place to search for news and articles on non-legal subjects like business, health, science, technology and literature. If you have any questions or need help with ProQuest or our other databases ask one of our reference librarians.

Writing a paper and need non-legal sources? The Widener Law Library subscribes to three databases that can be very helpful for non-legal research. EbscoHost, ProQuest, and JSTOR each offer full text articles from many journals different subject areas, including economics, science, medicine and more.

Like many of our other databases, you can access all three from on campus and off. If you are off campus you’ll be asked to enter your name and the barcode number on the back of the Widener ID to log on.
