I am considering purchasing ProQuest's Dissertations and Theses Database for the Science and Engineering Collection.  My customers do have access to Open Source Dissertations and Theses.   It was mentioned that this database can point to trends and future directions in research.

I am seeking the experiences and advice of other libraries that use this resource.  What are your thoughts about its usage by your customers and overall value to the mission your organization.
