What is happening to the names of several Historical Newspapers databases?
ProQuest is updating the database names for multiple ProQuest Historical Newspapers databases to better align with content coverage dates. Therefore, we will be changing the database names in the Knowledgebase. The content of the databases, and the database IDs, will remain the same.
This change will take effect on August 26, 2022:
|Before August 26||After August 26||DB code|
|ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Los Angeles Times (1881-1995)||ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Los Angeles Times (1881-1997)||C3E|
|ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Los Angeles Times (1881-2010)||ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Los Angeles Times (All Years)||PATRA|
|ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Chicago Tribune||ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Chicago Tribune (1849-1998)||F1M|
|ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Chicago Tribune (1849-2010)||ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Chicago Tribune (All Years)||H9A|
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 August 26, 2022.
- 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.
