ProQuest combines the strengths of two leading information companies, ProQuest Information and Learning and CSA. When these companies merged in 2007, it was on the basis of their most compelling common value -- a deep and abiding commitment to serving libraries and librarians.

ProQuest’s mission is to create innovative products and services that are valued by researchers – novice and expert – and the libraries which serve them. As a company, ProQuest stands for the power of discovery through research, and its employees work to deliver on that promise every day.
