How exactly is the company ProQuest involved with library operations?
AADL contracts with ProQuest to provide access to databases, such as the ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Detroit Free Press (1831-1922). Additional ProQuest databases are available to Michigan residents via the Michigan eLibrary at MeL.org.
For Summer of Service projects, ProQuest staff have worked on various small onsite and online library projects, but otherwise, ProQuest is not involved in library operations.
As a literacy tutor, townie(45yrs), SE, and bookworm; Please, the deeper and broader information integration and access AADL might provide the community, the better.
