Migrating resources to the new ProQuest platform

The following resources have been migrated from the CSA Illumina, Dialog DataStar and Chadwyck-Healey platforms to the new integrated ProQuest discovery platform:

* ASSIA (Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts)
* ARTBibibliographies Moderns
* Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals
* British Periodicals, 1680s-1930s
* DAAI (Design and Applied Arts Index)
* IBSS (International Bibliography of the Social Sciences)
* Sociological Abstracts

* AEI (Australian Education Index)
* BEI (British Education Index)

Configurations for access to all these resources on the Proquest platform have been enabled in Library OneSearch, and their previous category and sub-category assignments recreated. Access to all of these resources is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus. All of these resources are remote searchable in Library OneSearch.

For the titles in the British Periodicals, 1680s-1930s collection, SFX entries for the full-text content has been migrated from the Chadwyck-Healey to the new ProQuest platform. Outbound SFX integration (from the new platform to SFX) has also been configured and enabled.

Due to current licensing arrangements, in the native interface of the new ProQuest platform, the three education databases (AEI, BEI and ERIC) are managed separately from the other resources on the platform (see illustrations below), although the ERIC database appears in both ‘collections’.

In addition, full-text backfile access to The Economist (from 1992), currently available on the new ProQuest platform, has been enabled in SFX.
