    Pivot URL Change

    Important Announcement: Pivot is moving to a new URL

    On March 1, 2019, Pivot is moving to https://pivot.proquest.com and the current Pivot URL, https://pivot.cos.com, will be discontinued. Traffic to cos.com will not automatically redirect to the new URL, including any links you have on your websites, including bookmarks or saved searches.

    A new address for the same great site

    To access Pivot, go to https://pivot.proquest.com and log in with their username and password. Once there, they’ll find the same great site. This is a change in address only: all data remains, and the user experience and functionality are unchanged. You’ll also see your email alerts and Funding Alerts coming from an @proquest.com address instead of a @cos.com email address.

    Prepare today

    Pivot is fully operational using the URL https://pivot.proquest.com and you can start using this URL today. Be sure to…

    • Update links on your internal websites, in training materials and alert your faculty and researchers of the new URL before the current URL discontinues.
    • If you have saved searches, curated lists, or pivot search widgets on any webpages, simply change the cos.com portion of the URL to proquest.com. No need recreate the searches or lists.

    While you are making these updates, it’s a perfect time for you to review all Pivot materials, links, branding and messaging you have on your sites and in promotional materials and make sure they are up-to-date.  Please see helpful Pivot resources here!

    Also see the document Pivot URL Update Checklist and Guide for Pivot Admins. If you have any questions, contact our Support team.
