    360 KB: Open Knowledge Repository Database: Titles Will Be Removed -- November 2020

    What is happening to the database Open Knowledge Repository ?

    ProQuest currently has title-level information for the Open Knowledge Repository database from provider World Bank in the Knowledgebase. This database currently contains many broken links and out of date holdings information. We have not been able to successfully receive a response and updated titles list from the provider.

    In order to maintain accurate and authoritative provider metadata (based on the Knowledgebase collection policy), all titles will be removed from Open Knowledge Repository database in the Knowledgebase on 21 November, 2020. The database will become a zero-titles database. (NOTE: The database code for this database is VO9.)

    This means that this database (and its titles) will not be available to your patrons who use the E-Journal Portal or 360 Link, and you won't receive MARC updates for this database. However, the database will still be available for 360 Search, 360 Counter, 360 Resource Manager, Intota, and the Summon™ service.

    Actions you may need to take:

    • If you are a 360 Resource Manager, 360 Counter, or Intota client, you may need to make some changes to your account settings before 21 November, 2020:
      • Intota users click here.
      • Client Center users click here.
