In this page we will show the unique search features for Research Library. Go to the Platform LibGuide for a complete guide to ProQuest's search and display features.
Research Library offers several Look ups or browsable indexes, so you can easily find spelling or format variations of, for example, an author's name or a publication title. You can find the Look up links in the advanced search page and they are available for the following searchable fields: author, publication, subject, company/organization, person, location and classification code. For a description of these fields, please see the searchable fields page.
Note: Look ups are also available from the Command Line search (through the Look up terms link).
To use and locate a Look up link, select the field from the advanced search fields pull-down menu. If a Look up is available, under the search row you will see a link to it.
Some of the Look up links will be listed in the lower section of the advanced search page.
Select the Look up link and then you will see a browsable and alphabetical index for that field.
The Look up list of the NAICS codes is unique, since it offers a display of the codes in hierarchical order, which allows browsing through categories in an organized manner.
Some indexes will not display an alphabetical list before searching for the term, rather you will have to enter a term first, and then the alphabetical list of matches will display.
Once you locate the index term that you would like to add to your search, mark the item, and then click the Add to search button.
The index term will appear in the advanced search form along with the appropriate pull-down menu selection.
Research Library provides you access to videos from INTELECOM Intelligent Telecommunications, which offer a multimedia and multidisciplinary experience that ranges from videos in health sciences to political science.
To access the available videos by subject, go to the Advanced Search and select Audio & Video Works under Source Type. You can also use the PB-Publisher field code to locate the videos published by INTELECOM.
Once you select the type of source or search by "publisher", in your search results, filter by subject which will allow you to classify and select the videos available for each subject.
Here you can select the video collections to include or exclude from your search. Remember that all INTELECOM videos can be viewed on the ProQuest platform or downloaded in MP4 format.
