    360 KB: Janes Databases from Janes's Information Group: Databases Name and URL Domain Change -- February 2022

    What is happening to the name and URL linking syntax of Janes Databases?

    The provider Jane's Information Group has changed the name and the database-level linking syntax of Janes Databases.

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

    This change will take effect on February 20, 2022:

    DB Code Database Name before February 20, 2022 Database Name after February 20, 2022 Database-link before 
    February 20, 2022
    Database-link after
    February 20, 2022

    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, and if you have requested the custom specification that adds direct URLs to MARC records, you can expect to see some change records when you get your MARC records after February 20, 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.
    • Make sure that either or * is included in your proxy configuration before February 20, 2022.
