    360 KB: Multiple Providers: Title-Level Linking change to Secure Protocol (HTTPS) -- February 2017-Present

    Which providers' title URLs are switching to Secure Protocol (HTTPS)?

    Several providers are in the process of updating their linking from HTTP to HTTP secure (HTTPS). As the 360 KB receives updated title lists for these providers, we will be switching the title URLs to HTTPS in our Knowledgebase. The table below lists both a) articles we have already published in the Customer Knowledge Center, giving notice of particular provider changes, and b) future title URL changes to HTTPS will be listed in this article.

    Actions you may need to take:

    • Make sure that either the new domain, or new domain, with asterisk before (e.g. *, is included in your proxy configuration by the effective dates below. See Notes for details.
    • 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 the effective dates below.
