Please read the news story that SCP’s Becky Culbertson headlines OCLC Member story on shared cataloging.

Note on status of SCP cataloging requests: SCP currently does not have an automatic mechanism to notify requester when a requested title or collection of titles has been cataloged. SCP will try to notify bibliographer requestors individually when an Open Access title is cataloged but notification may not always happen. If you are wondering about the status of cataloging of an individual title (or package), please check for fuller information on the new collection request status page and/or OA journal titles request status page.  For OA journals, a title in green highlighting indicates the title is cataloged. For a new collection/database, titles in green highlighting indicate the database level cataloging is done, yellow highlighting indicates the title level cataloging is done. The new collection request status page also includes information about SCP’s recommendations and JSC decisions.

Note on SCP web pages: As part of the CDL website migration, SCP webpages are in a soft freeze period; all updates are sent to the CDL web team, so there will be some delay on keeping current with the E-resource tracking page, record distribution statistics, etc.

Please report to CDL Helpline on

  • Cataloging Delay (if more than three months):  A title might have been missed on the vendor title list, UC-eLinks (SFX) might have not yet been activated, OCLC record might have not been available yet, to name a few things that cause cataloging delays. It usually takes about two-three months for OCLC records to become available or for items to become available for SFX activation when new titles are added to an existing collection.
  • Cataloging Errors: Please include the OCLC Number (preferred), ISSN, or ISBN in the ‘Record Locator’ section of the form.
