    360 KB: Elsevier SD Freedom Databases: Database Name Change -- August 2022

    What is happening to the names of databases Freedom Collection Journals and Complete Freedom Collection?

    The databases Freedom Collection Journals [SCFCJ] and Complete Freedom Collection [SCCMFC] from the provider Elsevier Science Direct are named incorrectly.

    Therefore, we will be changing the database name in the Knowledgebase. The content of the database, and the database ID, will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on August 11, 2022:


    • Before August 11, 2022: Freedom Collection Journals [SCFCJ]
    • After August 11, 2022: Elsevier SD Freedom Collection Journals [SCFCJ]


    • Before August 11, 2022: Complete Freedom Collection [SCCMFC]
    • After August 11, 2022: Elsevier SD Complete Freedom Collection [SCCMFC]



    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 11, 2022.
    • 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.
