    360 KB: SpringerOpen from Springer Nature: Database Name Change -- December 2021

    What is happening to the name of database SpringerOpen?

    The database SpringerOpen from the provider Springer Nature is named incorrectly.

    Therefore, we will be changing the database name in the Knowledgebase to better describe the resource and align with the provider's naming.
    The content of the database, and the database ID (C6C), will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on December 7, 2021:

    • Before December 7, 2021: SpringerOpen
    • After December 7, 2021: Springer Nature OA/Free Journals


    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 7, 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.
