ProQuest rescued one of researchers' most valued reference tools when it took on publication of the Statistical Abstract of the United States when the U.S. Census Bureau ceased its production after 132 years. The move ensured continuation of this premier guide to an extraordinary array of statistics, relied upon by librarians, journalists, and researchers. The company continued the print edition and launched a new online version to access the comprehensive collection of statistics on the social, political, and economic conditions of the U.S. This online edition boosts researcher productivity and precision with features that present high-value data in a way that makes it simpler for users, ultimately enhancing access to key government and industry data.

"ProQuest is committed to empowering researchers and librarians around the world and this award represents acknowledgement of innovation for our information solutions," said Susan Bokern, vice president, product management, ProQuest. "Developed in collaboration with customers, this solution leverages our deep expertise in data curation and our technology capabilities."

"SIIA's 2014 Content CODiE Award winners' are some of the most innovative, high-impact content products out there," said Kathy Greenler Sexton, vice president and general manager for the content division, SIIA. "We congratulate all of this year's CODiE Award winners, and thank them for the contributions they have made to the information industry."

Winners were announced during a special Awards luncheon on January 30 in New York City during the SIIA's annual flagship conference for information industry leaders, IIS 2014: Breakthrough.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. The first round review of all nominees is conducted by media, publishing, and information services executives with considerable industry expertise, including members of the industry, analysts, media and bloggers, and bankers and investors. The judges are responsible for selecting the CODiE Awards finalists. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
