ProQuest completes Coutts acquisition

Share this on social media:

ProQuest has completed the acquisition of Coutts Information Services and MyiLibrary from Ingram Content Group. 

 

ProQuest is now beginning to integrate assets such as Coutts’ expertise in collection development, its print and digital titles, and platforms that include MyiLibrary and OASIS. 

They are being added to ProQuest’s Books unit of ebooks supporting research and a rapidly evolving technology framework for discovery, access and management of book content. ProQuest’s vision is to combine these collective strengths, creating an integrated workflow for print and digital content that will save librarians time and provide a superior book experience for users.

 

The company says customers and partners can expect a seamless transition as ProQuest welcomes Coutts; both should continue to work with their usual contacts and representatives. Further, the company is committed to keeping the Coutts and ProQuest networks open, collaborating with the many platforms and partners that give librarians choices in how they acquire and manage content. 

ProQuest is continuing to support EBSCO content just as ProQuest Ebooks remain on YBP’s GOBI. ProQuest’s ebook initiatives remain on track as well, with the debut of ProQuest’s powerful new Ebook Central just a few months away.
