Note on Naxos: The Naxos Music Library collections will be actively worked on in June to correct a problem created by the vendor. The entire collection (approx. 110,000 titles) must be analyzed to identify the titles in our catalogs we are/are not entitled to, the titles we should be entitled to, and to distinguish the titles correctly belonging to the Main and Jazz collections. This will require distributing a combination of records to be updated, deleted, and/or newly added for each participating campus. This work will not be done quickly but it will be done as quickly as possible.
DDA Programs: The first set of 310 ebook records from Maruzen eBook Library, a new Japanese DDA, were distributed in May. Other titles can be found by searching the database at http://uclibs.org/PID/330947. As such, there will be no discovery records for this collection. Title-level cataloging will occur only when titles are triggered for purchase. For more details, please check here.
Other DDA programs with numbers changed as of today, June 5, 2019: Airiti DDA (3,459 discovery records + 784 purchased titles), JSTOR CDL DDA pilot (6,473 discovery records + 1,275 purchased titles), CNPeReading CDL DDA online monographs (5,367 discovery records + 132 purchased titles).

Note on SCP serials cataloging: We are into the third month of Phase I, limited to SCP new serials titles and related records only, so far so good. SCP is also starting to brainstorm and plan for Phase II, i.e., retrospective changes for existing titles on print records to records for the online version. The date for Phase II has not set yet. We will announce it before Phase II starts. Please check CDLINFO 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 the CDL web team for processing so there will be some delay in 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.
