Why Use ProQuest Over a Regular Web Search?
While you can find scholarly and trade articles on Google and other search engines, they also return links and web pages offering inaccurate information. ProQuest only contains articles from credible and venerable sources, many of which are not available elsewhere. This means that when you run a search on ProQuest, you can rest assured that the information you find is more accurate, current, and reliable than what you would find via a Web search. Ultimately, this saves you time and helps you produce higher-quality work.
