You search and ProQuest delivers results. Depending on how your library or institution customizes ProQuest—including what databases they make available—ProQuest provides the following search methods:
- Advanced Search — Use a search form customized with search field and search operator dropdowns.
- Basic Search — Enter a word or phrase. Click Search. Get results.
- Command Line Search — If you’re more comfortable building search statements at a command prompt using search fields and operators, then Command Line searching might be for you.
- Publication Search — Search for a particular publication title. Search within available issues, and within individual issues. Then, browse issue contents.
ProQuest also supports browsing and topic exploration for some database products.
