The information needs of researchers change constantly. New technologies. Changes in curricula. The emergence of new subject areas and disciplines. These are just a few of the factors that impact the kinds of content researchers need, and the ways they access it.

Understanding these shifts and changes is part of the work that we do at ProQuest to empower libraries in achieving their mission: to provide their users with content and tools that will result in better research, better learning and better insights.

Join us at 2 pm ET on June 28 where we will share the findings of our most recent research into what types of information is most in demand by researchers, and how researcher needs have evolved since our last survey in 2014.
