Note on Naxos Music Library: Naxos is once again moving content around in its collections.

SCP asks for your patience as these issues get resolved.

Note on SCP serials cataloging: Starting April 1, SCP began cataloging new serial titles using online format MARC records and ceased 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 is happening in two phases.  For Phase I, SCP new serial titles, records started to be distributed on Monday, April 8, 2019. Where there are changes to existing records (e.g. coverage changes) we continue to use the print version record. Phase II, will be retrospective changes for existing titles on print records. The date for Phase II has not set yet. We will announce it before Phase II starts. Please check 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 web team, so there will be some delay on keeping current with 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.
