SSCI 'CO' Field Question

A humble bibliometrics fan with a question about a certain field in
Eight years ago using Dialog access to SSCI, I was able to identify
which countries were most frequently represented in the literature of
Library & Information Science. I did this by:
* Using JCR - identify the top 10 journal titles in the category
called "Library & Information Science"
* Using SSCI - identify the "Geographic Location" (particular
field in each record) for each article - according to SSCI this
corresponded to the primary author's self-reported country
In trying to replicate this search now I encounter two problems:
1. JCR doesn't seem to have a category called "Library &
Information Science" anymore. Am I just missing this? I'm not sure how
to identify this collection of journals - except through my own
subjective selection of titles
2. Using SSCI through Web of Science - I am unable to see the "CO"
(Country of Origin - seems to have replaced Geographic Location) field
in the full record. I know in the advanced search, there is an option
to limit to particular countries - but I want to be able to display the
CO field for a list of records - just as you would view the author or
source field for each record.
Does anyone on the list have an answer/insight to either of these
