Proquets Is Buying Dialog

Proquest announced surprisingly a few days ago that they are going to buy Dialog from Thomson Reuters.

For those that are not in the library business, Dialog is the biggest research database in the world with 900 databases, more than 1.4 billion unique records and operations in 27 countries.

ProQuest said that it would update Dialog’s platforms, renovate existing products, and explore new opportunities .

To find more details about the deal, read the press release from Proquest.

I am happy that the oldest database (and my favorite one) is in the hands of a company like Proquest that truly understands libraries, research and librarians and I am sure that very soon we will see some positive change.
