Please join Clay Boss, Federal Sales Account Executive at ProQuest on Wednesday, February 17th for a presentation and demonstration on ProQuest's current new solutions.  Come see how your Library can offer a robust news solution delivered on our platform, integrated into your desktop news solutions, or delivered via RSS and other methods.


As a leader in current news databases, ProQuest offers a suite of options for current and historical news coverage including:


ProQuest NewsstandT lets librarians create an online newspaper resource that meets the needs of their library's patrons.  Customers can choose to receive a selection of major national newspapers, or create customized state and regional packages.  The core of the database includes international, national and regional papers such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, USA Today, The Guardian, El Norte, Jerusalem Post, and South China Morning Post.



Now Available! Exclusive access to 85 full-text newspapers from the world-leading news and information provider, Gannett, plus an additional 7 U.S. military titles will be available on a non-exclusive basis. Gannett newspapers span 30 states providing high quality reporting to their local and regional constituencies. A complete list of Gannett titles available through ProQuest can be found at


NewspaperDirect Press-Display provides instant online access to today's newspapers from around the world in full-color, full-page format.  The ever-expanding collection currently includes nearly 1,000 U.S. and international titles. Just like reading the familiar print edition, viewers can browse articles and other key content, such as pictures, advertisements, classifieds, and notices. The service also provides up to a 60-day backfile and the ability to perform keyword searches across all titles and the entire backfile.



Critical Mention - ProQuest is the exclusive distributor of Critical Mention to libraries.  Critical Mention is a comprehensive web-based television and radio search and monitoring service that allows users to search, track and view critical information from an expanding network of U.S. and international broadcast stations.  The platform provides real-time monitoring and e-mail alerts for organizations that require up-to-the minute news. Critical Mention allows users to easily find news clips immediately after broadcast, and instantly share the clips within a workgroup via a secure video e-mail or a private video gallery.  Basic and advanced searching features ensure you will find the information you need, at the moment it is available.



This presentation and demo will be offered live at the FLICC/FEDLINK Training Room at the Library of Congress Adams Building (2nd Floor Room 216, 2nd & Independence Ave., SE, Washington, DC) as well as via Webinar for those of you outside of the Washington, DC area.
