SCP has posted the distribution statistics report for the month of June. This monthly report shows net increase or decrease of titles from CDL licensed and selected open access collections. The major highlight of this month is that as of June 26, SCP reached a milestone.

For June there were  98 new titles added to Art & Architecture Source and the removal of 127 titles (includes Academic Search Complete 49 titles and CINAHL Plus 70 titles).

ProQuest Early English books online monographs: Kate Garvey-Clasby did a major update by removing the existing 129,009 titles and loaded a new set of 130,753 vendor records. The many updated records included enriched data and/or link to the scanned images. A special file is posted with specific instructions for campuses to update this collection locally. All new records now contain a ProQuest control number in MARC tag 001 with a prefix “eebo” (sometimes this is an OCLC number for the microfilm version of a title; sometimes it is a vendor control number). No OCLC holdings attached to any titles in this collection, the same as the records for this collection before this update.

CDL eScholarship online monographs: the initial batch of 1,455 titles in the eScholarship monographs collection was distributed to campuses on Monday, July 2, 2018. Donal O’Sullivan, Kate Garvey-Clasby, and Becky Culbertson spent several months planning and strategizing, working with Lisa Schiff and her colleagues at CDL as well as in consultation with OCLC staff. Donal, especially, finalized the strategies and developed the MarcEdit task list to identify and convert CDL mass digitization records into MARC 21 records in OCLC in batch. Thanks to all of them for getting this complicated project done by the deadline. This is an open access collection representing the academic output of some UC faculty and staff. The collection is ongoing and will be updated on a quarterly basis.

DDA programs with number changed as of today: Airiti DDA (2,979 discovery records + 614 purchased titles), and JSTOR CDL DDA pilot (3,578 discovery records + 541 purchased titles).
