    360 KB: Palgrave Macmillan: Databases Migration -- December 2016

    What is happening to the databases available from Palgrave Macmillan?

    The provider Palgrave Macmillan has moved most of its e-journals and e-books from its Palgrave Connect platform to Springer platforms available from the provider Springer-Verlag.

    In order to maintain accurate and authoritative provider metadata (based on the Knowledgebase collection policy), the Palgrave databases will be hidden in the knowledgebase on December 1, 2016.  Libraries that currently subscribe to these databases will continue to have access to these databases. However, if your library is not already subscribed, you will not be able to view these databases in the Knowledgebase.

    The above change will take effect on December 1, 2016.


    Our knowledgebase now contains new Palgrave journal and e-book databases hosted on Springer:

    • Palgrave Journals: Titles have been incorporated into Springer Online Journals Complete (database code SOJ).  The journals can additionally be found in SpringerLink Palgrave Journals (database code CSNOR).  Journals International Abstracts in Operations Research (IAOR) and the open access title Palgrave Communications will remain on platform.
    • Palgrave Ebooks: Titles are no longer separated by year of publication.  All publications for a given subject are listed together in one database per subject collection.  See databases in attached spreadsheet.


    If you need more information, here are links to two articles containing the details of Palgrave Macmillan's content migration to Springer platforms:




    Action you need to take:

    • Once the above change takes effect, update the holdings in your Intota or Client Center profile by subscribing to the new database instead of the old database.  For information on how to update your profile, and considerations prior to removing the old database from your profile:
      • Intota users click here.
      • Client Center users click here.
    • If you are a 360 MARC Updates client and have requested the custom specification that adds direct URLs or database specific information to MARC records, you can expect to see some change records when you get your MARC records after December 1, 2016.
