    360 KB: SpringerLINK subject databases from Springer-Verlag: Databases Name Change -- March 2017

    What is happening to the names of some of SpringerLINK subject databases?

    Some of SpringerLINK subject databases from the provider Springer-Verlag are named incorrectly.

    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 March 20, 2017:

    This is the list of the databases to be renamed:

    Old database name (before March 20, 2017) New database name (after March 20, 2017) Database ID
    SpringerLINK ebooks - Behavioral Science & Psychology (2016) SpringerLINK ebooks - Behavioral Science and Psychology (2016) AATRE
    SpringerLINK ebooks - Economics & Finance (2016) SpringerLINK ebooks - Economics and Finance (2016) AFXGI
    SpringerLINK ebooks - Law & Criminology (2016) SpringerLINK ebooks - Law and Criminology (2016) AIWED
    SpringerLINK ebooks - Literature, Cultural & Media Studies (2016) SpringerLINK ebooks - Literature, Cultural and Media Studies (2016) AAXDT
    SpringerLINK ebooks - Political Science & International Studies (2016) SpringerLINK ebooks - Political Science and International Studies (2016) ABDSI
    SpringerLINK ebooks - Social Science and Law 2016 (German Language) SpringerLINK ebooks - Social Science and Law (German Language) (2016) AIQKT
    SpringerLink ebooks - Lecture Notes in Computer Science (2017) SpringerLINK Lecture Notes in Computer Science (2017) CVWCR
    SpringerLink ebooks - Lecture Notes in Mathematics (2017) SpringerLINK Lecture Notes in Mathematics (2017) EEESA
    SpringerLink ebooks - Lecture Notes in Physics (2017) SpringerLINK Lecture Notes in Physics (2017) ELWTZ


    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 March 20, 2017.
    • 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.
