    360 KB: Optica Publishing Group: Database Name Changes -- December, 2022

    What is happening to the name of databases from Optica Publishing Group?

    The provider Optica Publishing Group has changed the name of databases.

    Therefore, we will be changing the databases names in the Knowledgebase. The content of the databases, and the database IDs, will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on December 14, 2022:

    Old Name New Name DBID
    Optical Society of America Optica Publishing Group Journals ROS
    Optics InfoBase Basic Optics InfoBase TR6
    Optics InfoBase Premium Optics InfoBase Premium AZSQR
    OSA Digital Archive Digital Archive 1 TI1
    OSA Digital Archive 2 Digital Archive 2 OAHPD
    The Optical Society Publishing Proceedings Optica Conference Papers ROP

    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 [effective date].
    • 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.
