What is happening to the URL linking syntax of database DOAB: Directory of Open Access Books?
Currently database DOAB: Directory of Open Access Books contains various linking syntaxes. All url linking syntax in database DOAB: Directory of Open Access Books will be unified under the DOAB URL.
Therefore, we will be changing the title-level linking syntax in the Knowledgebase. The content of the databases will remain the same. Due to the high demand and usage for this database, the new linking syntax will be deployed immediately.
This change will take effect on September 13, 2022:
- Before September 13, 2022: Various
- After September 13, 2022: https://directory.doabooks.org
Actions you may need to take:
- Make sure that either https://directory.doabooks.org or *doabooks.org is included in your proxy configuration before September 13, 2022.
- If you are a 360 MARC Updates client and have requested the custom specification that adds direct URLs to MARC records, you can expect to see some change records when you get your MARC records after September 13, 2022.
