Enrollment in the ProQuest Library School Program is now open for the 2009-2010 school year. The program makes ProQuest’s acclaimed reference tools available to information science students at no charge during the school term. The program is aimed at supporting library education, enabling students to learn essential search skills on the data resources they are likely to encounter after graduation. ProQuest also selected students for its Student Trainer Initiative, which helps LIS students to develop bibliographic instruction skills.
All ALA-accredited library schools in North America, plus library and information science degree-granting institutions outside of the U.S., are eligible for free term access to popular ProQuest resources. The full list of products is available at www.proquest.com/go/lsp. The complimentary subscriptions will be available to library school students and faculty. ProQuest is also making its professional training team available to provide on-site and/or remote training to classes and give presentations on practical topics such as working with vendors or non-traditional careers for library graduates. Library schools that reside on a campus with four or more ProQuest databases are eligible to receive a classroom sampler of microfilm newspaper/research collections, and electronic versions of film subject catalogs.
