Shared Cataloging Program (SCP) Monthly Update: September 2015

scp2The first set of records for two new monographic packages were sent out last month, for Business Expert Press and for the Oxford Literature Handbooks. Business Expert Press promotes itself as providing “… concise, practical, treatments of the topics taught in MBA programs … written by professors who translate real-life business experiences into teaching tools …” The Oxford Literature Handbooks cover various aspects of English poetry, prose, verse, and drama. While currently limited to literature from the British Isles and North American, Oxford plans to include coverage of literature from other English speaking regions.

Also new were titles for the Early American Newspapers, Series 2. Series 2 contains newspapers mostly from the time period 1820-1860 and as such, provides significant information about the era of American western expansion, slavery, sectionalism, and the Mexican-American War.

Our major serial record distributions for July were for Early American Newspapers Series 2 (289 titles), Open Access (53 titles), and EBSCO (40 titles). For monographs they were for Business Expert Press (362 titles), IEEE (189 titles), EBSCO Japanese DDA (137 titles), Wiley (76 titles), CRC Press (81 titles), and Airiti (70 titles).

Until next month …
