On Thursday, December 16th, our ProQuest resources will receive an ultimate makeover.

Gone are the ugly shades of yellowish-orange in favor of a clean, blue user interface that’s so 2011. ProQuest databases are now more accessorized with a new Subject Areas field that lets you browse the site by topic. You can also filter your search results list from the right side – if you’ve used an EBSCO database, this will look familiar. The new ProQuest has a very Google-esque Article Preview also: mouse-over the article of your choice, and you’ll get more information about the article before you even make one left-click.

What am I doing describing this, anyway? There’s a demo right on the ProQuest site. Check it out: New ProQuest Platform Demo
