Your library administrator or authorized library personnel will need to update your existing URL links for each of the following Digital Microfilm titles to which you subscribe.

Additional configuration may be needed if you are authenticating via proxy server.

Step 2: Customization and Technical Requirements Checklist
Use the Notify Me feature on this Support Page, to get timely notifications when updates happen as more Digital Microfilm newspaper titles move to the ProQuest platform.
What is changing?
What is the timing, and will all titles migrate at the same time?
What should I do once I receive notice that the titles are live?
Update any A-Z links; you may read more about link updating here. Should you wish to customize your institution's platform settings, you may do so via the ProQuest Administrator Module.
What do I have to do in order to update any links?
See the section on this page, Steps to Update Links and Proxies for complete information. You will need to manually replace any legacy Digital Microfilm database link with links to each new ProQuest Digitized Newspapers: Recent Newspapers title.
When will the Digital Microfilm platform be decommissioned?
The legacy Digital Microfilm platform will remain up and running through December 2018.
Is the new ProQuest Digitized Newspapers: Recent Newspapers content discoverable on Summon?
Yes, and it will soon be discoverable in Primo. However, it is not on OCLC or Google Scholar.
Do we need to worry about link resolvers with the new ProQuest Digitized Newspapers: Recent Newspapers product?
No, because the content is page-level based, it does not work with link resolvers.
Can my library set up one link to access the Historical, Recent, and Contemporary News for the same title?
Yes. An administrator can customize setup via the ProQuest Administrator Module. Read more about the steps required to make customizations here.
Will MARC records still be available for Digital Microfilm titles?
Yes, MARC records will be available as each title releases. If you have set up automatic delivery of MARC records, you will get a set of updated records once you access the new, upgraded products. Otherwise, you can request a complete set of MARC records from the ProQuest Administrator Module, which includes relevant added/deleted/changed records.
Will usage stats be available?
Yes. You can access Recent Newspaper usage stats via the ProQuest Administrator Module. For more information about usage stats, visit the ProQuest Administrator Module user guide.
