The links in ProQuest alerts are able to detect if your computer is connected to the campus network.
If you are off campus, you will automatically be prompted to log in with your UM credentials, and then you will be redirected to the desired item.
You will need to log in only once per session.
ProQuest is a family of more than 70 databases covering a variety of topics and disciplines. Many of the scholarly databases are updated on a regular basis. You can subscribe to alerts so that you will be emailed with new items matching your preferred searches.
