    360 KB:ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Los Angeles Times (1881-1989) and ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Washington Post (1877-1996) from ProQuest: Database Name Change -- June 2014

    • Product: 360 KB

    What is happening to the names of the databases ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Los Angeles Times (1881-1989) and ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Washington Post (1877-1996)?

    We are changing the names of two of the ProQuest Historical Newspapers databases to better reflect their content.

    Therefore, we will be changing the database name in the 360 KB knowledgebase. The content of the database, and the database IDs (C3E and DN9), will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on June 18:

    Before June 18: ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Los Angeles Times (1881-1989) and ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Washington Post (1877-1996)

    After June 18: ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Los Angeles Times (1881-1990) and ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Washington Post (1877-1997)

     

    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 June 18.
    • 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.
