360 KB: Emerald: Platform Migration -- August 2019
What is happening to the Emerald databases?
The provider Emerald is in the process of migrating to a new platform at https://www.emerald.com/insight. You can find more information about this migration here: New platform information
In order to maintain accurate and authoritative provider metadata (based on the Knowledgebase collection policy), we will be updating the database and title-level URLs in the Knowledgebase. Emerald has informed us that they will provide us with the updated title lists, that will include the new URL structure for the new platform, in August 2019. In the meantime, the content will be accessible via redirects.
This change will take effect on August 30, 2019:
Before August 30, 2019: https://www.emeraldinsight.com
After August 30, 2019: https://www.emerald.com/insight
Actions you may need to take:
- Make sure that https://www.emerald.com/insight is included in your proxy configuration before August 30, 2019.
- 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 August 30, 2019.
