    360 KB: Some databases from Sabinet Online Ltd: Database Name Change -- April 2021

    What is happening to some Sabinet Online Ltd databases names?

    The provider Sabinet Online Ltd. has changed the names of some databases.

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

    This change will take effect on April 29, 2021:

    Database Name Before April 29, 2021: Database Name After April 29, 2021: Database code (DBID)
    SA ePublications Business & Finance Collection Sabinet African Journals Business & Finance Collection 1RE
    SA ePublications Law Collection Sabinet African Journals Law Collection 1RF
    SA ePublications Medicine & Health Collection Sabinet African Journals Medicine & Health Collection 1RG
    SA ePublications Religion Collection Sabinet African Journals Religion Collection 1RH
    SA ePublications Science, Technology & Agriculture Collection Sabinet African Journals Science, Technology & Agriculture Collection 1RI
    SA ePublications Social Sciences & Humanities Collection Sabinet African Journals Social Sciences & Humanities Collection 1RJ
    SA ePublications Open Access Journal Collection Sabinet African Journals Open Access Collection JRA
    SA ePublications Complete Sabinet African Journals Core Collection RFP


    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 April 29, 2021.
    • 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.
