    360 KB: Wiley-Blackwell Subject Backfiles: Database Migration and Retirement -- June 2018

    What is happening to the databases Wiley-Blackwell Subject Backfiles?

    The Wiley-Blackwell branded Subject Backfiles databases will be retired. In their place, we have already created and are maintaining Wiley Online Library branded Subject Backfiles databases.

    In order to maintain accurate and authoritative provider metadata (based on our Knowledgebase collection policy), all titles will be removed from the following databases and they will be hidden in the Knowledgebase on June 15, 2018. The databases will become a zero-titles databases, and no future subscriptions will be possible.

    Please note: as with all Wiley subscriptions, the provider retains discretion to update the titles -- both number and content -- contained in each package. For that reason, there may not be a 1:1 match of titles from retired collection to current collection. Since we update these collections using metadata supplied directly by Wiley, inquiries about specific title additions/deletions would be best directed to your Wiley sales representative. If you are indeed entitled to journals beyond what is in a given collection, please track the title(s) individually via the Wiley Online Library All Backfiles (database code 1OB).

    We have prepared the following map, also available as an Excel spreadsheet, showing the mapping from old databases to new databases.
