Note on SCP serials cataloging: Starting April 1st, SCP will catalog new serial titles using online format MARC records and cease the practice of using print format MARC records.  The latter consisted of adding URL links to print records. This essentially acted as a composite record for both print and online versions. The change will happen in two phases. For Phase I, SCP new serial titles, records will start being distributed on Monday, April 8, 2019. Where there are changes to be made to existing records (e.g., coverage changes) SCP will continue to use the print version record. The start date for Phase II, retrospective changes for existing titles on print records has not been set yet. SCP will announce this before Phase II starts. Please see the CDLINFO article for more details.

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 CDL website 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.
