The Natural Science Collection provides access to nine databases covering scholarly and technical literature in the subject areas of agriculture, aquatic science, biology, conservation, earth & environmental sciences, education, food science, forestry, geography, medical sciences, meteorology, pharmacology, public health and safety, veterinary science, and water resources. Users can choose to search at the title, sub-collection, or full collection level. The "deep indexing" of tables and figures allows for searching by caption, subject heading, and/or figure type. The ProQuest Natural Science Collection offers over 21 million abstract and index records, 8 million indexed tables and figures, and 1,600 full text journals.
