ProQuest content subscriptions now available with library software agreements

Innovative, part of Clarivate, announced that libraries of all types can now add new subscriptions for ProQuest, part of Clarivate, content to new or existing library software contract with Innovative. As both part of the Clarivate Academia and Government segment, Innovative can help libraries simplify their purchasing and subscription options by adding ProQuest content when signing new contracts.

"This is a great opportunity for libraries to have access to more resources and options through one conversation," said Carrie Pearson, Director of Product Sales. "We are always looking for ways to make the most out of being part of Clarivate and we are excited to extend these resources from one division to the next to serve our customers."

Library software customers can add any ProQuest content to a new contract through Innovative. Libraries already subscribed to ProQuest content can continue to renew through their standard process or talk with an Account Manager if they have additional questions. To help libraries find content that fits their community, Innovative and ProQuest have highlighted five featured collections:
