Q. ProQuest Literature Online


ProQuest Literature Online

Our aim is to ensure that Literature Online is accessible to everyone. This page explains how you can take advantage of some of the techniques we’ve used to enhance accessibility within Literature Online.‚Äč

Using the TAB key

You can use the TAB key to navigate through the main elements of a page, such as links and form fields.

  • Press the TAB key to move forward to the next feature.
  • Press SHIFT and the TAB key to move back to the previous feature.

Note: Default settings in Safari are to press Option and the TAB key to move through each link on the page.


Skip navigation

If you use a screen reader or your keyboard to access Literature Online, you can bypass the site-wide navigation links and jump directly to the content of the page using the "Jump to main content" link at the top of each page. This link is usually hidden from view but can be revealed on screen by pressing the TAB key.


Popup windows in Literature Online

Literature Online makes use of popup windows to provide some content. Popups do not provide advertising in Literature Online; they always contain content from Literature Online or our publishing partners.

If you have a popup blocker activated, you will need to disable it for full access to Literature Online content. Alternatively, most popup blockers can be configured to allow popups for sites you select, while still blocking popups from other sites. Refer to your browser help for details on how to disable your popup blocker or to allow popups within Literature Online.

Links which trigger a popup window include warning text to inform you that content will load in a new browser window.
