New features in the ProQuest databases

As of October 2012, you will notice some new features in the ProQuest databases. These features are designed to enhance your research experience:

  • On the search results page there are three new filters (‘Full text’, ‘Peer reviewed’, and ‘Scholarly journals’) available in the ‘Narrow results by’ pane.
  • Book display enhancements: the Publication Search for books more accurately represents this media type. Only book-specific metadata such as ISBN is displayed, and periodical-related fields have been removed from book records.
  • ‘Cited by/references’ links have been added to ‘Publication/issue browse’ functionality.

Affected ProQuest databases include:

  • MLA International Bibliography
  • PsycInfo
  • The Curriculum Package
    • Biological Science Collection
    • Computing
    • Education Journals
    • Health Management
    • Military Collection
    • Nursing & Allied Health Source
    • Psychology Journals
    • Religion
    • Science Journals
    • Social Science Journals
