Trial Access to 100+ Electronic Resources

ProQuest Website

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library has secured three years of trial access to every primary source product sold by ProQuest, an information-content and technology company which provides applications and products for libraries. ProQuest is piloting the program with a number of different universities.

The ProQuest “Access and Build Program” includes access through August 31, 2021, to 115 electronic resources (see below) that touch on the humanities, music and the arts, the social sciences, and some scientific disciplines. There are newspapers, government documents, digitized books and journals, scanned microform sets, streaming videos, and recorded sound collections.

A ProQuest website highlights everything that is available through the duration of the Access & Build Program. Users can search for digital journals, newspapers, and databases at Resources in the Program are labeled as a trial.

“While the resources secured through the licensing arrangement are not permanent acquisitions, the Library is excited to be able to make them available to the faculty, staff, and students at Illinois for a substantial amount of time,” said Tom Teper, Associate University Librarian for Collections and Technical Services. “In addition, this program banks our spending, creating a deposit account and enabling our purchasing decisions to be informed by data gathered about the collections’ use.”
