    360 KB: ProQuest's American Periodicals and British Periodicals: Titles Will Be Removed -- April 2020

    What is happening to the databases American Periodicals and British Periodicals?

    ProQuest is retiring both American Periodicals (db code: D1Z) and British Periodicals (db code: 0U0) -- these databases are bundles of smaller databases, and the parent-level database does not provide customers with the correct holdings. In order to ensure your access to these holdings, please track the appropriate databases below.

    The databases American Periodicals and British Periodicals from the provider ProQuest are no longer being updated. In order to maintain accurate and authoritative provider metadata (based on our Knowledgebase collection policy), all titles will be removed from both databases and the databases will be hidden in the Knowledgebase on April 8, 2020. The databases will become a zero-titles database, and no future subscriptions will be possible. (NOTE: The database code for these databases are D1Z and 0U0.)
