What is happening to the names of Oxford Journals 2017 A-Z Collection and Oxford Journals 2018 A-Z Archive databases?
Although Oxford University Press changed their sales model for Oxford Journals collections to an annual representation (Database name changes, 2017), the A-Z Collection and A-Z Archive collections remain unaffected by this change and include all titles published by Oxford University Press. Therefore, to maintain correct and accurate data in the Knowledgebase, the following Oxford databases will be changing names:
- Oxford Journals 2017 A-Z Collection (DB Code: ROX) to Oxford Journals A-Z Collection (DB Code: ROX).
- Oxford Journals 2018 A-Z Archive (DB Code: ABSAR) to Oxford Journals A-Z Archive (DB Code: ABSAR).
Oxford Journals 2018 A-Z Collection (DB Code: BAYMD) will be hidden. New content will be available in the Oxford Journals A-Z Collection (DB Code: ROX) database.
This change will take effect on April 9, 2018
- Before April 9, 2018: Oxford Journals 2017 A-Z Collection and Oxford Journals 2018 A-Z Archive
- After April 9, 2018: Oxford Journals A-Z Collection and Oxford Journals A-Z Archive
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 April 9, 2018.
- 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.
