    How to activate "ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global"? In the Community Zone there are no portfolios available for this Electronic Collection.


    To include in the Primo Filtered Search and enable delivery of dissertation full-text:

    1. Activate the Electronic Collection from the Community Zone
      • Ensure that the Electronic Collection has an unsuppressed bib and "title level" (Electronic Collection level) URL
    2. Edit the CDI tab and select: "CDI-only full text activation". 
    3. Several Alma Institutions find it useful to add a GES (General Electronic Collection):
      1. Configuration > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > General Electronic Service > Activate or create GES: "ProQuest Dissertations
      2. Service Availability Rules" will rely on the rft.genre
