ProQuest Platform Enhancements

In late July, ProQuest made several enhancements to their platform:

Search Results Display Enhancements

Link Resolver Icons: Display of article full text availability has been enhanced by moving the icons for access via link resolvers to appear just to the right of other format icons (e.g. Full Text, PDF, Abstract, etc.).

PDF File Size: The search results page now displays the size of PDF files for all databases (except Historical Newspapers and the American Periodicals Series). The PDF file size will be added to all new content and will appear over time for older content.

Article Display Enhancements

Find More Documents Like This: The highly valued ProQuest feature 'More Like This' has been enhanced to make finding similar documents even quicker. It is also more prominently displayed at the top right of the page for easy access.

Abstracts & Full Text: The abstract and full text have been moved to the top of the page to increase their visibility. The detailed indexing can now be found at the bottom of the page.

Cite This: The very popular ProQuest feature for creating a quick bibliography in the user's preferred citation style (MLA, APA, Turabian, etc.) is now conveniently available on every article display page.

Copy Link: A new feature has been added which allows users to quickly and easily copy durable links to articles.
