ProQuest ABI/INFORM Subscribers to Receive Expanded Backfiles Access, Wiley Content. (Information Today)


ProQuest Information and Learning has announced a major product enhancement to ABI/INFORM, a business periodicals database. The company also announced that it has partnered with John Wiley & Sons, Inc. to distribute the journal content from Wiley's BoldIdeas Collection of business journals as part of ProQuest's ABI/INFORM business database to educational institutions, libraries, and other markets around the world.

ABI/INFORM

Effective immediately, all subscribers to ABI/INFORM databases will receive access to the ABI/INFORM Archive database--a collection containing historical backfile content for 25 business periodicals, with more titles to be loaded later this year. Customers of ABI/INFORM with full page images will receive page images of the backfile content.

Rod Gauvin, senior vice president of ProQuest Information and Learning, said: "This enhancement greatly expands the historical depth of ABI/INFORM. Now researchers can identify business trends, research pivotal events in the financial world, and most importantly, view the original articles in their original context-complete with photos, charts, graphs, and illustrations.

Digitized from the microform masters in ProQuest's vault, the ABI/INFORM Archive provides cover-to-cover, full-page images from leading business journals dating to the beginning of the 20th century, complete with illustrations and advertisements. The database is searchable by keyword and Boolean operators, plus table-of-contents access. Once users identify articles they need, they can display, print, or download them in a single keystroke.

The backfile content has been integrated into the current subscription so that searching across all years is seamless.

In addition to providing access through annual subscription, ABI/INFORM Archive is also available under a perpetual access license.
