ProQuest logoProQuest (linked below) is one of our biggest and most popular database providers. Once you have entered ProQuest through the library's website, you can register for a free My Research account.  This account will allow you to:

  • Save documents and searches across ProQuest sessions. That means if you visit your library today, create a My Research account, and then save a few documents and some searches to your account…they’ll still be there—in your account—when you visit your library, tomorrow…or next week.
  • Create folders to save and manage documents you find relevant to your research.
  • Save and manage search alerts, publication alerts, and RSS feeds.
  • Set ProQuest preferences that will be in effect during any ProQuest session when you are signed in to your account.
  • Tag documents with words or phrases you think are relevant or suggestive of a document’s content or focus. Then, share those tags with other users in the ProQuest community—or keep your tags private, so only you see them.
  • Create lists of documents that you find interesting, important, or otherwise noteworthy. Then, share your list with the ProQuest community. Lists, along with tags, are a great way to share research ideas and inspirations with users in libraries and schools around the world.
To create your account:
  1. Go to the  ProQuest Database Suite (if prompted, log in with your student/faculty id and password)
  2. Click "Create a My Research Account" (see a screen capture here)
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen to set up your account. 
  4. To return to your account in future ProQuest sessions, look for the "My Research" link in the upper right corner of your screen.
