Over 160 subject areas are covered comprehensively, including business and economics, health and medicine, news and world affairs, technology, social sciences, education, law and women’s studies.

ProQuest Central’s home page is clean and simple to use, allowing you to search easily across all the included databases, browse by topic or view the list of publications available. A full list of the individual databases that are included in ProQuest Central is also provided. The extensive range of health and medicine video training programs covers topics from how to perform specific medical procedures, such as tracheostomy care and cardiac monitoring, to more general advice on health issues such as aging and allergies.

The publications list, also available from ProQuest Central’s home page, allows you to search by title – very handy if you know what you’re looking for – or by subject, publisher, language or type of publication. Delving into the lists of trade journals, magazines or newspapers demonstrates the incredible breadth of information available, with everything from teaching journals and agricultural publications to boating magazines and newspapers from around the world.

Useful search tips also make searching easy and efficient.

ProQuest Central can be accessed through our One Search catalogue by following the Select Databases link and going to the alphabetical list of databases.

It is available to all SLQ members, with onsite and remote access. If you’re not already an SLQ member, you can sign up for free membership at SLQ’s online membership page.
