Shared Cataloging Program (SCP) Monthly Update — May 2013

By Adolfo Tarango, Head, Systemwide Collection Services

Last month Springer topped our list for most titles distributed, 2731, which included the first titles sent, 41, for the newest Springer subject collection, Energy monographs. These include all the recently licensed 2013 titles published to date. Following it, our other significant distributions were for Wiley (309 titles), IEEE (87 titles), and SuperStar (85 titles). For journals, EBSCO (161 titles), Open Access (126 titles), Wiley (62 titles), and Cambridge (31 titles) represented our highest distributions.

On Tuesday, May 14th, SCP posted a file of records for the Dacheng journals, 6,971 titles. These are brief records that SCP created from available vendor data. Over time, the campuses will receive full-level OCLC records to replace these brief records. The replacement of records will be done per the standard SCP process for the replacement of records: the replaced record will be redistributed as a delete and the new record sent coded as new.

Until next month …
