    360 KB: ProQuest One Literature from ProQuest: Database Name Change -- December 2022

    What is happening to the name of database ProQuest One Literature?

    The database ProQuest One Literature from the provider ProQuest is being updated for market specificity. Some holdings in the current collection are only available in the United States.

    Therefore, we will be changing the database name in the Knowledgebase. The content of the database, and the database ID (LIQON), will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on December 9, 2022:

    • Before December 9, 2022: ProQuest One Literature
    • After December 9, 2022: ProQuest One Literature - U.S. Customers Only

    Note that for customers based outside of the United States, a new ProQuest One Literature collection has been created with DB code AIMQZ. If your institution is anywhere outside of the United States, please track AIMQZ and not LIQON.


    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 December 9, 2022.
    • 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.
