Shared Cataloging Program (SCP) Monthly Update: August 2017

SCP has posted the distribution statistics report for the month of July [xlsx]. This monthly report shows net increase or decrease of titles from CDL licensed and selected open access collections. Here are the highlights of our major record distributions. For our major serial record distributions are the Open Access journals. There was a big shift, including a decrease of 1,477 titles that no longer housed in DOAJ, and a subsequent big increase of 1790 titles of “plain” Open Access journals. Three hundred were new OA titles; the remainder were “former” DOAJ titles that for one reason or another had been removed from the DOAJ database. When titles in DOAJ change, the earlier title is removed. SCP closes off the holdings and keeps the title as a “plain” OA. Also included in the Open Access journals this month were ScienceDirect online journals (19 titles), PubMed Central online journals (9 titles), etc.

For monographs, the major record distributions were: ACM Digital Library online conference proceedings (54 titles), Cambridge online monographs (449 titles), CRC Press. CRCnetBASE online monographs (165 titles), EBSCO Japanese DDA pilot online monographs (57 titles), Elsevier monographs (308 titles), IEEE Xplore online conference proceedings (208 titles), JSTOR online monographs (134 titles, which include: CDL DDA pilot, 128 titles), Open Access monographs (400 titles which include: JSTOR online monographs 382 titles), Safari tech books online monographs (38 titles), SpringerLink monographs (703 titles which include titles in 19 subject areas: Biomedical and life sciences monographs 52 titles, Computer science 104 titles, Earth and environmental science 51 titles, Engineering 88 titles, and Medicine 75 titles), Wiley online monographs (89 titles), Airiti CDL DDA online monographs (396 titles), CNPeReading CDL DDA online monographs (89 titles), and Superstar Chinamaxx online monographs phase 1 (39 titles).
