What is happening to discontinued products in the ProQuest product portfolio in 360 KB?
Update Jan. 15, 2018: Added three databases to table for hidden databases scheduled for title removal in February 2018: ProQuest Newspaper Collection (DBID: 7RT), PsycCRITIQUES (DBID: 8BX), and U.S. & Kentucky Newspapers (DBID: S0Z)
Update Dec. 27, 2017: Added new table for hidden databases scheduled for title removal in February 2018.
Following the ProQuest Product Portfolio changes in 2016, several ProQuest databases in the 360 KB are now discontinued, and already hidden from public view in the 360 KB (if your library is not already subscribed, you will not be able to view these databases in the Knowledgebase.) However, there are currently several databases for discontinued ProQuest products which still contain title-level data.
In order to maintain accurate and authoritative provider metadata (based on the Knowledgebase collection policy), all titles will be removed from discontinued ProQuest databases in the table below in the Knowledgebase on February 28, 2018. The databases will become zero-titles databases.
