    360 KB: Reference Center databases from Ebsco: Database Name Change -- March 2024

    What is happening to the name of the Reference Center databases?

     The provider Ebsco has changed the name of Some Reference Center databases

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

    This change will take effect on April 8, 2024:

    Database Code Database Name Before April 8, 2024 Database Name After  April 8, 2024
    ESN Science Reference Center Science Reference Source
    ELX Points of View Reference Center Points of View Reference Source
    ERH History Reference Center History Reference Source
    49. Science Reference Center eBook Collection Science Reference Source eBook Collection
    34I Biography Reference Center Biography Reference Source
    3LD Literary Reference Center Plus Literary Reference Plus



    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 [effective date].
    • 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.
