ProQuest Celebrates National Library Week

This is a great opportunity to take a look at some of the resources ProQuest has included in their proposal to the Washington State Library for the 2011-2013 Statewide Database License Agreement.

From April 10-16, 2011, ProQuest is offering free, open access to some of our most popular online resources, plus new tools for marketing your library’s online research databases. Go to proquest.com/go/celebrate.

Also, join us on Facebook to enter the “My library rocks because…?” Sweepstakes. From April 11-15, 2011, we will ask you a fun question about your library on ProQuest’s Facebook page. Share your answer to the daily question for a chance to win great prizes (including an iPad 2). Official rules are available at
proquest.com/go/nlwcontest.
