Our latest free trial is ProQuest Research Companion.
A new cloud-based information literacy solution for student researchers
and educators that guides students through the research process and
helps them develop their critical thinking and information literacy skills.
Studies have shown that today's researchers are unequivocally
overwhelmed with too much information and data—throughout all the stages

Research Companion combines multimedia-based learning modules and
powerful quick-start evaluator tools into one resource.
Learning Modules are organized into easily digestible sections and are
structured as nine commonly asked researcher questions which provide a
foundation and context for finding, evaluating, and using information.
The modules cover such topics as "Where do I start?" to "How do I avoid
plagiarism and find my own voice?" to “What’s the best way to revise?”
They are delivered as a series of visually compelling and inventive
videos, or in a full-text, readable format and are written in a
conversational style that improves learning outcomes and maximizes
