Human-Centered Design: Constructing Library Resources for Real-World Needs

Take a look at the interactive, fascinating journey of how ProQuest is reinventing yesterday’s linear databases into interactive research, teaching and learning experiences. Learn how digging deep into the challenges faced by faculty, students and librarians spurred the creation of the world’s largest multidisciplinary research resource, ProQuest One Academic.

• Helping students evaluate accurate, reliable and trustworthy information sources
• How libraries can evolve their collections to meet today’s academic needs
• The types of resources librarians would create with their magic wands
