Database Transitions: From EBSCO to ProQuest : Database Transitions

Database Changes

Access to several of USU Libraries' databases is provided by the State Library (Utah Education Network). After an extensive RFP process, ProQuest was selected as the database vendor for the academic institutions in Utah. As a result, we will be gaining access to new content and some of our coverage is changing. See below for details.
