Submitted on January 10, 2011 - 9:35PM

ProQuest Logo If you love ProQuest Research Library as much as we do, you are probably familiar with the trusty yellow and white interface we've all come to know and love. Well, get ready for a big change, because Proquest just got a big facelift. But it's not just it's looks that have changed. Now you can search across more databases at once, and you can more easily narrow your search with the tools at the right of your search results. Try some of the cool features in advanced search, like the Figures & Tables search when you need a graph. Get started by finding ProQuest Research Library under the Quick Links on the library homepage, or wherever you're used to finding it. If you're familiar with Summon, you'll be good to go on the new ProQuest platform, but if need the rundown, give us a shout and we'll help you get started. It only takes a couple of minutes to get the hang of it--and you'll be glad you did.
