    360 KB: Select ProQuest Historical Newspapers databases from ProQuest: Database Name Change -- May 2014

    • Product: 360 KB

    What is happening to the names of multiple ProQuest Historical Newspaper databases?

    We are removing the date ranges from the names of multiple ProQuest Historical Newspaper collections so that the names no longer need to be updated each year when new content is added.

    For example, ProQuest Historical Newspapers : Los Angeles Sentinel (1935-2005) will become ProQuest Historical Newspapers : Los Angeles Sentinel

    The content of the database, and the database ID ([DBID]), will remain the same. Please refer to the attached spreadsheet for a list of databases whose names will be changing.

    This change will take effect on May 17:

    Actions you may need to take:

    • If you are a 360 MARC Updates client and have requested the custom specification that adds the database name as it appears in the Client Center to MARC records, you can expect to see some change records when you get your MARC records after May 17.
    • If your library uses a third-party service (such as SFX, EBSCO A-Z, etc.), custom scripts to manage data, or other non-Serials Solutions tools that require the database name to function, you should note the change in Serials Solutions' database name in order to retain the proper relationship/mapping between those tools.
