    360 KB: IEEE databases: Databases Name Change -- March 2021

    What is happening to the names of IEEE databases?

    The provider IEEE has changed the names of 5 databases.

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

    This change will take effect on March 2, 2021:

    DB Code Before March 2, 2021 After March 2, 2021
    RIE IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) IEEE Electronic Library (IEL)
    IFIPE IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) Journals IEEE Electronic Library (IEL) Journals
    0X0 IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) Standards IEEE Electronic Library (IEL) Standards
    6IE IEEE/IET Electronic Library (IEL) Conference Proceedings IEEE Electronic Library (IEL) Conference Proceedings
    FXRIH IEEE English For Engineering IEEE eLearning - English for Engineering


    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.
