How proQuest Databases can help you create a "Virtual Library"
As an information provider to academic institutions worldwide, ProQuest Information and Learning (formerly known as UMI) has the aim of facilitating and improving access to information via microfilm, CD-ROM and the World Wide Web. Most libraries of today, whilst still holding microfilm and CD-ROM as valuable formats, are rapidly turning to the virtual answer for their research needs. This could be in the form of searching the web, e-journals or aggregated databases such as ProQuest. This presentation is designed to help clarify how ProQuest Information and Learning can help a library, or libraries in a consortium, reach their information peak - virtually - in areas ranging from Medicine, Social Sciences and Business to Technology, Literature and Education.
