    360 KB: O'Reilly Safari Learning Platform from O'Reilly Media, Inc: Database Name Change -- February 2021

    What is happening to the name of the O'Reilly Safari Learning Platform databases?

    The provider O'Reilly Media, Inc. has updated the name of the O'Reilly Safari Learning Platform to O'Reilly Online Learning.

    Therefore, we will be changing the database names in the Knowledgebase. The content of the databases, and the database IDs (OODEK, OHILO), will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on February 15, 2021:

    DB code Before February 15, 2021 After February 15, 2021
    OODEK O'Reilly Safari Learning Platform: Academic edition O'Reilly Online Learning: Academic/Public Library Edition
    OHILO O'Reilly Safari Learning Platform: Corporate Edition O'Reilly Online Learning: Corporate Edition


    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 February 15, 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.
