Changing to the New ProQuest Platform - Intercession 2011

Once we tell ProQuest that we are migrating, all links will automatically redirect. We can add updated links at later date. We  migrated to the new ProQuest platform on 12/19/11. Note that the Chadwyck Healy databases are not yet moving over: LION, Black Studies Center, Periodical Archives Online, African American Bibliographical Database. See the  List of databases migrating and Everything You Need to Migrate to the All-New ProQuest Platform.
