    360 KB: Research Source databases from AM (Adam Matthew): Database Name Change -- June 2023

    What is happening to the names of Research Source databases?

    The provider AM (Adam Matthew) has changed the names of Research Source databases.

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

    This change will take effect on June 16, 2023:

    DB Code Database Name Before June 16, 2023 Database Name After June 16, 2023
    AFCSG Research Source- Area Studies: China AM Scholar: Area Studies China and Southeast Asia
    ADCAX Research Source- Area Studies: India AM Scholar: Area Studies India
    ACQZR Research Source- Area Studies: Japan AM Scholar: Area Studies Japan
    AMSAC Research Source- Business, Economics and Labour AM Scholar- Business, Economics and Labour
    ASVMR Research Source- Church Missionary Society Archive AM Scholar: Church Missionary Society
    ASQRD Research Source- Empire Studies AM Scholar: Empire Studies
    BDDAZ Research Source- Literary Studies AM Scholar: Literary Studies
    BJKCY Research Source- Medieval and Early Modern Studies AM Scholar: Medieval and Early Modern Studies
    AWUDR Research Source- Missionary Studies AM Scholar: Missionary Studies
    ANUOX Research Source- Womens Studies AM Scholar: Womens Studies
    AQAGH Research Source- World War Two Studies AM Scholar: World War Two Studies


    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 June 16, 2023.
    • 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.
