What is happening to the name of SpringerLINK databases?
To better align database names with product names, the provider has identified a list of SpringerLINK databases in 360 KB to be updated.
Therefore, we will be changing the database names in the Knowledgebase throughout the month of May, 2020. The content of the databases, and the database IDs, will remain the same.
This change will take effect on May, 2020.
- The list of affected databases is here: SpringerLink_DB_Name_Change.xlsx
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 May, 2020.
- 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.
