Springer Naming Changes - December 2023

Recent Springer Changes

Effective December 11, 2023, Springer Nature introduced changes to the names of many of their collections at: and to the  associated file names.

The changes were implemented in keeping with Springer's commitment to adhere to the consistent collection and file naming conventions as defined by NISO KBART Recommended Practice.  

Ex Libris is in the process of incorporating these changes into the Knowledge Bases.  Also, the update mechanism will be reconfigured to accommodate the new file names.  More than 1500 collections are involved.  The project is scheduled for completion in March 2024.

The changes relate to naming conventions and should not affect the content of the targets nor the links.  

A list of the name changes is available here:
