    360 KB: eBooks databases from EBSCOhost: Database Name Change -- November 2018

    What is happening to the name of the EBSCO eBook databases?

    Many of the eBook databases from the provider EBSCOhost are named incorrectly.

    Therefore, we will be changing the database name in the Knowledgebase. The content of the database, and the database ID ([DBID]), will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on November 26. 2018:

    Current Database Name Database Code New Database Name

    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 November 26.
    • 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.
