ProQuest sells off its microfilm production and digitization operations.

Ann Arbor, Mich.-based ProQuest <www.proquest.com>, most familiar to genealogists as owner of the subscription site HeritageQuest Online <www.heritagequestonline.com>, has sold its microfilm production and digitization operations to National Archive Publishing Co. <www.napubco.com>. ProQuest’s president, Alan Aldworth, says the microfilm business has fallen off as more people turn to digital formats for recording information. The company retained rights to its newspaper and scholarly collections, as well as digital rights to periodical content, so it still can provide you with genealogical data via HeritageQuest Online. You can access that data for free through subscribing libraries.
