    In order to maintain accurate and authoritative provider metadata (based on the Knowledgebase collection policy), all titles will be removed from Springer Protocols ( database in the Knowledgebase on July 25th, 2018.

    This means that this database (and its titles) will not be available to your patrons who use the E-Journal Portal or 360 Link, and you won't receive MARC updates for this database. However, the database will still be available for 360 Search, 360 Counter, 360 Resource Manager, Intota, and the Summon™ service.

    Please note that these changes do not concern the Springer Protocols (code SPO) database in 360 Knowledgebase which will remain active and be updated on a monthly basis.
