What is happening to the database Congressional Historical Indexes, 1789-1984 from provider LexisNexis?
The provider LexisNexis is no longer providing database Congressional Historical Indexes, 1789-1984; instead, it is being provided by ProQuest.
Therefore, we will be changing the provider and database URL associated with this database in the knowledgebase.
This change will take effect on October 31, 2016:
- Before October 31: LexisNexis; Database URL http://academic.lexisnexis.com/onlin...t-indexes.aspx
- After October 31: ProQuest; Database URL http://search.proquest.com/congressional
This will affect the following database(s):
Congressional Historical Indexes, 1789-1984. Database code 2BU
Action you need to take:
- Make sure that either http://search.proquest.com or *proquest.com is included in your proxy configuration before Oct 31, 2016.
- If you are a 360 Resource Manager or 360 Counter client and you have information attached to the old provider that also pertains to the new provider (such as license information), you can attach the information to the new provider in the same way they were attached to the old provider. See information about Attaching Resources and Licenses:
- If you are a 360 MARC Updates client and have requested the custom specification that:
- Adds the provider name as it appears in the Client Center/Intota to MARC records, you can expect to see some change records when you get your MARC records after October 31.
- Adds direct URLs to MARC records, you can expect to see some change records when you get your MARC records after October 31.
- If your library uses a third-party service (such as EBSCO A-Z, etc.), custom scripts to manage data, or other non-ProQuest tools that require the provider name to function, you should note the change in provider name in order to retain the proper relationship/mapping between those tools.
