Your Resource for Information Literacy
ProQuest is one of the most popular database providers amongst EasyBib users based on feedback collected from our subscribers. Due to high demand, we’ve been working closely to integrate our citation services with their databases.
In the past, we’ve introduced ProQuest’s direct export to EasyBib function. Today, we’re proud to announce a new feature for EasyBib subscribers.Read More
EasyBib and ProQuest have joined forces and are officially offering an “export to EasyBib” option on ProQuest to make students’ and educators’ lives easier when it comes to generating citations. The “export to EasyBib” option allows users to accurately generate citations while strengthening information literacy skills. In just a few clicks, a user can have a citation ready to go for their project.
Some students may find using large databases intimidating, but by having an “Export to EasyBib” option, students can spend less time worrying about their citations and more time accessing great resources to strengthen their project.
More publishers and databases including OCLC, IGI Global, ABC-CLIO, and most recently Mackin Via, have been integrating an EasyBib option to their platform because their users subscribe to EasyBib. If this is something that interests you, contact the databases that you currently have and request an export to EasyBib option.

Students don’t always like using databases. How do we know that? Of the top sources cited on EasyBib only one of them is actually a database (it’s JSTOR if you were curious) and the rest were all websites, including sites with user-generated content like Wikipedia and Answers.com.
We can’t force students to use sources found in databases, but we CAN make it a little easier to cite from them.
We’ve partnered with several databases and credible websites (full list below) to make it super easy for students to cite books, articles, etc. found in databases on EasyBib. All students need to do is find the EasyBib link or icon and click on it (much like the one at the top of this article). To add the citation to the right project, students should be logged into EasyBib and inside their project within the same browser.
