New ProQuest Databases, and Downtime

CSU Library subscribes to a number of databases provided on the ProQuest platform. These have traditionally included such datababases as ANZ Newsstand, Dissertations and Theses Full Text, ProQuest Religion, ProQuest Natural Science Collection, and ProQuest Science Journals. Recently, CSU Library has subscribed to ProQuest Central, which includes a number of new databases, including the well-known business database ABI/Inform, and various other databases covering a range of subjects. (We are in the process of listing these new databases on our databases pages.) ProQuest advises that, on Sunday 5 February 2012, for a period of 12 hours from 2 pm (AEDT), all ProQuest databases will be unavailable while infrastructure management is carried out. ProQuest has said: “ We welcome customer feedback. Please email your comments to platform feedback at“.
