    360 KB: Aerospace Research Central Publications from AIAA: Database Name Change -- January 2024

    What is happening to the name of database Aerospace Research Central Publications?

    AIAA database Aerospace Research Central Publications (DBID RAA) includes both books and journals in the same collection.

    To better represent the material types, and enable users to activate relevant collections, the AIAA main database will be renamed to AIAA Aerospace Research Central Books and will contain only books, and a new database will be created and called AIAA Aerospace Research Central Journals (DBID for the new database is NDIHS).

    Therefore, we will be changing the database name in the Knowledgebase.

    This change will take effect on January 18, 2024:

    • Before January 18, 2024: Aerospace Research Central Publications
    • After January 18, 2024: AIAA Aerospace Research Central Books



    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 [effective date].
    • 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.
