    360 KB: Walter De Gruyter University Press: Databases Name Change -- December 2020

    What is happening to the names of some Walter De Gruyter databases?

    The provider Walter De Gruyter has changed the names of some university presses databases.

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

    The changes in the databases names will begin on December 27 and continue until it is finished.

    List of the databases to be renamed is here.

    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 27.
    • 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.
