    360 KB: Brill Online Books and Journals from Brill: Database Platform Migration -- November 2018


    What is happening to the database and platform Brill Online Books and Journals?

    The provider Brill is in the process of migrating their Brill Online Books and Journals platform to their platform. The two platforms will remain online and run parallel until Brill determines that the newly created platform (database code AMFWP) is fully functional and announces that the old platform Brill Online Books and Journals (database code HS9) is retired. Note: all Brill eBook and eJournal collections and packages on the will also migrate.

    In order to maintain accurate and authoritative provider metadata (based on the Knowledgebase collection policy), all titles will be removed from Brill Online Books and Journals (code HS9) and the database will be hidden in the Knowledgebase upon official retirement in November/December 2018, becoming a zero-titles database. NOTE:  Please subscribe to (code AMFWP) in order to access titles previously available in database HS9.

    This change will take effect in November/December 2018:

    Database Brill Online Books and Journals

    • Before November 29th, 2018: Brill Online Books and Journals (database code HS9)
    • After November 29th, 2018: (database code AMFWP)
