    360 KB: Multi Data Online from Multidata Services Inc.: Database Name Change -- effective February 2018

    What is happening to the name of database Multi Data Online?

    The provider Multidata Services Inc. has changed the name of database Multi Data Online.

    Therefore, we will be changing the database name in the Knowledgebase. The content of the database, and the database ID (1X4), will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on February 2nd, 2018.

    • Before February 2nd, 2018: Multi Data Online
    • After February 2nd, 2018: MSI



    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/Intota to MARC records, you can expect to see some change records when you get your MARC records after February 2nd, 2018.
    • 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 database name to function, you should note the change in ProQuest's database name in order to retain the proper relationship/mapping between those tools.
