    360 KB: NDL Digital Collections from National Diet Library: Database Names Change -- January 4, 2021

    What is happening to the names of NDL Digital Collections databases?

    The NDL Digital Collections databases from the provider National Diet Library need to be changed to better reflect the provider database names. The Tier 3 Operations team consulted with the Provider and confirmed that they want the journals and books to be kept in separate 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 January 4, 2021:

    DB Code Database Name Before January 4, 2021 Database Name After January 4, 2021
    N4T NDL Digital Collections (国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション) 国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション 図書 インターネット公開
    NDCVP NDL Digital Collections (国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション) 図書館送信 国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション 図書 図書館送信参加館配信 
    PEWTB NDL Digital Collections (国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション) 館内公開 国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション 図書 館内限定 
    ZABIQ NDL Digital Collections (国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション) 雑誌 国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション 雑誌 インターネット公開 
    ZJWQK NDL Digital Collections (国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション) 雑誌館送信 国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション 雑誌 図書館送信参加館配信 
    ZOHVM  NDL Digital Collections (国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション) 雑誌館内 国立国会図書館デジタルコレクション 雑誌 館内限定


    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 January 4, 2021.
    • 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.
