As a reminder, the University of Chicago (via URA) offers unlimited access to ProQuest’s Pivot database to help faculty and other researchers, staff members, and students find funding opportunities and potential collaborators for research and scholarly endeavors. The Pivot database is updated daily and provides information on more than $45 billion in funding opportunities from federal, non-federal, foundation, corporate, and other private sponsors across all disciplines.
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.
To access Pivot, you will need to go to https://pivot.proquest.com/shibboleth/login and sign in with your UChicago credentials (CNetID or UCHADID). 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 a @proquest.com address instead of a @cos.com email address.
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, email signatures, training materials and alert your faculty and researchers (as appropriate) of the new URL before the current URL discontinues.
If you have any questions, please review the FAQ attached or submit a support case @ https://supportcase.exlibrisgroup.com/?product=Pivot.
