Becky was busy dealing with journal titles that are removed from Aggregators (mainly EBSCO since Proquest and Gale are pretty steady). For example, in January 2017, 209 title change requests with 16 added titles and 171 titles removed or stopped; in February 2017, 87 title change requests with 3 added titles and 62 titles removed or stopped. For file distribution last month, 120 titles of EBSCO journals were removed.
SCP revised and updated the request form for new cataloging projects which simplified the questions asked and made the request form online. We also share the request status online for SCP recommendation, JSC decision, and the project initial completion date. Please share with your campus subject librarians.
