Learn how librarians perceive research databases in the wake of changing student and faculty content needs. The research paper, published jointly by Library Journal and ProQuest, sheds some light on the importance of having a variety of content available to users, how libraries can evolve their collections to meet today’s academic needs and more.
Take a look at the interactive, fascinating journey of how ProQuest is reinventing yesterday’s linear databases into interactive research, teaching and learning experiences.
Peer-reviewed journals are still essential for research and teaching, but the mix of content used by faculty and students is expanding.
The information needs of researchers change constantly. New technologies, changes in curricula, the emergence of new subject areas and disciplines are just a few of the factors that impact the kinds of content researchers need.
As academic research is becoming more multidisciplinary in nature, this trend is driving the need for comprehensive research databases that span multiple disciplines.
By providing collections that align closer to their users' resource, librarians can support researchers who are studying complex global challenges and need a solid understanding of how various issues are intertwined.
ProQuest is meeting this need for a multidisciplinary, multi-format collection with a revolutionary new product: ProQuest One Academic.
