ProQuest supports libraries with diverse, equitable and inclusive collections – affordably

Through collections and services, libraries have a unique platform to support diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, ensuring representation of diverse users and reflecting every voice, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability or belief.

But librarians tell us these efforts can be challenging. Budgets are shrinking and they are continually expected to do more with less – which makes it difficult to grow collections and services according to demand.

Authentic: From news to periodicals to books, primary sources help students learn from authentic, alternative perspectives and voices. Discover the most diverse and inclusive selection of primary sources to support your emerging research and learning needs across disciplines. See new titles available for 2021.

Affordable: Options like affordable subscriptions, subscribe-to-own buying plans, or special pricing on primary source collection purchases help stretch your budget.

Consultative: ProQuest in-house librarian experts can review your library collection and university curriculum and provide insights on content that meets the needs of your users, free of charge.
