    360 KB: Digital Collections Name Changes from Gale: Database Name Change -- August 2016

    • Product: 360 KB

    What is happening to the names of Gale's Digital Collections databases?

    The provider Gale has changed the name of the following databases.

    Therefore, we will be changing the database names in the Knowledgebase. The content of the databases, and the database IDs, will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on August 29:

    Old Database Name Database Code (DBID) New Database Name
    Database Name Changes
    British Newspapers 1600-1950 IBN British Library Newspapers
    19th Century British Newspapers KBN British Library Newspapers, Part I: 1800-1900
    19th Century British Newspapers, Part II 8L5 British Library Newspapers, Part II: 1800-1900
    British Newspapers Part III: 1780-1950 7S. British Library Newspapers Part III: 1741-1950
    British Newspapers, Part IV ALWVK British Library Newspapers Part IV: 1732-1950

    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 August 29.
    • If your library uses a third-party service (such as SFX, 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.
