Note on Chinese DDA records: Over 4,200 of CNPeReading DDA discovery records were sent to Data Sync Service for record matching or creation in Jan. 2019, after Bie-hwa Ma and Kate Garvey-Clasby prepared the file including deduping among e-books packages and cleanup). OCLC returned the results in Feb.  Among them, 3,672 new records were distributed and the same amount of brief records were sent for deletion on Feb. 19, 2019. There were 517 records not distributed due to matched OCLC records lacking parallel Romanization fields. We are currently waiting for OCLC to resolve the issue. Please stay tuned for the upcoming update.

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 more information on the new collection request status page and/or OA journal titles request status page.  For OA journals, titles highlighted in green indicate the title is cataloged. For new collection/database, titles highlighted in green indicate database level cataloging is done; yellow highlighting indicates 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 web pages 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 the 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.
