    360 KB: Addendum to EBSCOhost databases from EBSCOhost: Publication Type and Identifiers Change -- January 2022

    What is happening to some EBSCOhost databases?

    Addendum to recently published article: 360 KB: EBSCOhost databases from EBSCOhost: Publication Type and Identifiers Change -- December 2021

    Previously published: Some of the EBSCO databases are enhanced with identifiers from other files during the ingestion process into the Knowledgebase. However, if EBSCO KBART title list indicates publication type "Serial," the monograph identifier (ISBN) would be removed. This means you might notice some changes to the title type from monograph to serial or vice versa. Also, some identifiers would be removed due to this conflict. The publication type in the knowledgebase will match the provider KBART file.

    Addendum 1: Changes to these databases started from December 2021. As EBSCO provide new files and our autoloader processes them, the changes will be reflected in the metadata after the update. This will vary depends on when the file was updated and if the files can be processed.
