Digital Resource Center

The DRC provides the ProQuest Suite of Databases to districts at a reduced fee through the Washington State Database Licensing Project.  By combining full-time enrollment student counts, we are able to provide ProQuest's resources at a rate that is severely discounted.

This section provides information on how to subscribe to the ProQuest Suite of Databases through the Digital Resource Center (DRC).

By purchasing resources through the DRC, districts will receive support in the following areas, lowering the impact on district staff:

  • intermediary between district and vendor;
  • technical support for resources and contact with support services for resources;
  • maintainence and updates of all usernames and passwords for each database in the Suite;
  • notification to participants of any changes in resources or special promotions; and,
  • training as requested using online resources (webinar) with either DRC staff or product vendor/trainers or in district training when available.
