    360 KB: Some Manchester University Press Databases: Databases Name Change -- December 2020

    What is happening to the names of some Manchester University Press databases?

    The provider Manchester University Press has changed the name of some databases.

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

    This change will take effect on December 2, 2020:

    Database ID (DBID) Database Before December 2, 2020 Database After December 2, 2020
    ABWRG manchesterhive Manchester Hive
    AASNE manchesteropenhive Manchester Open Hive
    ACTNG Manchester Film Studies Manchester Film Studies 2019
    AFTJE Manchester Gothic Manchester Gothic 2017
    AAOVX Manchester History of Medicine Manchester History of Medicine 2019
    ABOTB Manchester International Relations Manchester International Relations 2019
    MNMEO Manchester Medieval Sources Online Manchester Medieval Sources Online (MMSO) 2013
    AAXQQ Manchester Religious Studies Manchester Religious Studies 2019
    AIMVP Manchester Political Studies Manchester Political Studies 2019
    AETYH Manchester Security, Conflict & Peace (MSCP) Manchester Security, Conflict & Peace (MSCP) 2018
    AFCAQ Manchester Shakespeare Manchester Shakespeare 2018
    AATPG Manchester Studies in Imperialism (MSI) Manchester Studies in Imperialism (MSI) 2017
    CQF Manchester Medieval Studies Manchester Medieval Studies 2020


    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 2, 2020.
    • 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.
