Marketing Material

The ProQuest Administrator Module (PAM) is the admin module to the ProQuest Platform. Through the PAM you are able to customize interface settings, add organizational branding, create database login links, set up Google integration, retrieve usage reports (including new COUNTER 5 reports), configure full text access from ProQuest to other resources as well from other services to ProQuest, set up and manage authentication, create title lists, and request MARC records. 
In addition to the databases you have on your ProQuest Platform, you can also use the PAM to pull usage reports for ProQuest Congressional, Statistical, Legislative Insight, Regulatory Insight, Supreme Court Insight, History Vault, and Government Periodicals Index. 
Access to the PAM is available by username and password here: For most accounts, there is a single primary administrator profile used by the system administrator. This profile has access to all the features within the PAM. If you do not have an account, you can request access with our customer service team at
