Just 5 years ago, 50% of the average academic library materials budget was spent on print resources, according to John Law, the new VP of enterprise product strategy at ProQuest. In 2014, it will be less than 30%, and by 2020, it is predicted to be about 5% to 10% of the budget. Law says the company's new enterprise strategy is focused on integrating and leveraging (ProQuest's portfolio of assets) to improve service to their customers and to power better research outcomes for users. His role is to work with product and technology leaders across the enterprise to identify and anticipate opportunities for innovation through integration of ProQuest assets.
