    360 KB: National Theatre Collection from Alexander Street: Database Name Changes -- November 2023

    What is happening to the names of the National Theatre Collection databases?

    Alexander Street is adding text components to their National Theatre Collection, Volume 1 & 2 products. These will be new, separate text databases in 360 KB. Therefore, we will be changing the existing video database names in the Knowledgebase. The content of the databases, and the database IDs, will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on November 17, 2023:

    Before November 17, 2023 After November 17, 2023 DB Code
    National Theatre Collection, Volume 1 National Theatre Collection, Volume 1 (Video) BWILD
    National Theatre Collection, Volume 2 National Theatre Collection, Volume 2 (Video) HEJYA


    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 November 17.
    • 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.
