eLibrary Completely Transforms on Thursday!


Oh My Gosh – It’s only 48 hours away!

On Thursday, December 14th, elibrary.bigchalk.com will become explore.proquest.com.

This isn’t just a fresh coat of paint. eLibrary has been completely re-imagined and redesigned to more efficiently guide students to identify their research topic and find authoritative information to support their research claim. Get ready for:

Highly Visual Navigation: Users are shown our curated Research Topics front and center!

Easy Topic Selection: Students can browse through simplified Subject and Common Assignment trees to help them with the most stressful research task – choosing a topic.

Streamlined Feature Set: There’s now more focus on tools that researchers actually use, like citation generation and Google integration.

More Efficient Search Engine: Users will find relevant content faster.

Responsive Design: The new eLibrary is optimized for use on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

Cross-Search: Hosting on the award-winning ProQuest platform allows simultaneous searching with other ProQuest databases.

The eye-popping, curiosity-sparking look and feel of the new eLibrary very cleverly disguises what continues to be a powerful tool that will engage your students in research.
