ProQuest Webinars & Screencasts


Public Webinars on Wednedays - Spring 2021 Program - UK Time

Deep dive into Health and Medical information on ProQuest.

In the spring 2021 we hosted a series of webinars focused on the search functionality for health and medical teaching, learning and research through ProQuest. We started at introductory level suitable for non-expert users, students, under and post-graduate and we progressed to advanced level for expert users, librarians and government researchers.
If you are entirely new to the ProQuest platform, and would like a short overview of full platform functionality before joining the sessions below, we recommend you watch some of our short e-learning modules available on the ProQuest Platform LibGuide
