Shared Cataloging Program (SCP) Monthly Update — August 2012

By Adolfo Tarango, Head, Systemwide Collection Services

The new EEBO monograph records have been sent to each of the campuses on CD-ROM. When we receive confirmation from every campus that they have received their CD-ROM, we will prep the EEBO serials for distribution. Since SCP will distribute actual OCLC records for the serials, the new serial records will be distributed as one of the regular SCP weekly serial files. This SCP serial file will contain only the new EEBO serials. We will send an announcement prior to distributing the EEBO serials.

Serial distributions highlights for July were EBSCO Academic Search Complete (328 titles), Open Access (106 titles), and Royal Society of Chemistry (59 titles). Monograph records distributed include Gale Selections from Sabin Americana (1296 titles), Springer (926 titles), Royal Society of Chemistry (515 titles), World Bank (471 titles), American Geophysical Union (314 titles), SuperStar (201 titles), Apabi (157 titles), IEEE (116 titles), CRC Press (85 titles), Safari (74 titles), Wiley (59 titles), Cal Docs (54 titles), and Knovel (51 titles). The monograph and serial Royal Society of Chemistry titles were for the newly acquired RSC eBook collection. Also a new collection is Selections from Sabin Americana which is another component of Gale’s World Scholar: Latin America and the Caribbean. Here are found primary source materials published in the period 1500-1926 and covering a very broad range of subject areas.

Until next month …
