ProQuest “Problem”

Monday, August 19th, 2013 | Posted in Faculty, News, Resources, Students by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

If you’ve been using any of the ProQuest databases and resources, you may have encountered a new feature – the CAPTCHA (see below).  The CAPTCHA may appear in as little as five downloads during your search.  Proquest implemented this action to counter search engine bots that are inappropriately downloading electronic text.

Please note that USF Librarians have contacted ProQuest regarding the CAPTCHA implementation.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us: http://lib.usf.edu/fmhi/contact-us/.


Example of CAPTCHA:



Example of ProQuest Resources:

  • AIDS and Cancer Reseach Abstracts
  • Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts (ASSIA)
