ProQuest is one of the leading vendors of online databases. If you are a regular user of JHU’s online information resources, then you’ve probably already mined information from a ProQuest product: ABI/Inform Global (now ABI/Inform Complete with added content), International Bibliography of Art, BioOne, and many more.

Now, thanks to our new expanded subscription with ProQuest, you have over two dozen more of the vendor’s products to delve into—and some of them cover completely new ground.

Want to see an actual page view of a 1952 Baltimore Afro-American article about great figures in Negro Baseball? You can now have that experience right on your computer screen. How about a piece in the October 30, 1929 New York Amsterdam News about a woman fighter sent to jail for biting her opponent? In addition to Baltimore and New York, other newly available newspapers cover Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and Atlanta back to the early years of the 20th century. This complements dozens of other news sources you may have already used in the past.

Other new databases cover computing, European business, family health, military publications, psychology, biology, career and technical education, the pharmaceutical industry, religion, the social sciences, the Civil War era, banking, accounting & tax, and a wide range of Canada-focused publications.
