SCP Monthly Update – July 2019

SCP has posted the distribution statistics report for the month of June 2019. This monthly report shows net increase or decrease of titles from CDL licensed and selected open access collections. For serials, major distributions were Open Access journals (95 titles, including DOAJ 61 titles) and Taylor & Francis online journals (13 titles).
For monographs, the new collection Gale. Sabin Americana, 1500-1926 online monographs (7,944 titles) was added. The slight delay in cataloging comes from having to identify the duplicate titles already cataloged in World Scholar Selections from Sabin Americana, 1500-1926, Eighteenth Century Collections Online, Making of the Modern World collections, among others, not to mention the appearance of duplicate titles/records within the collection itself.  SCP is confident the remainder of the collection will be cataloged in July. For details about the collection, please read the CDLINFO article here.
Other major record distributions were: ACM Digital Library online conference proceedings (80 titles), Cambridge online monographs (177 titles), CRCnetBASE online monographs (89 titles), Elsevier monographs (141 titles in 17 subjects), IEEE Xplore online conference proceedings (186 titles), JSTOR monographs (404 titles), Knovel Library online monographs (158 titles), Open access resources selected by the UC Libraries (1,753 titles, including eScholarship online monographs 66 titles and JSTOR 1,678 titles), SIAM online monographs (10 titles), SpringerLink monographs (710 titles in 22 subjects, including: Biomedical and life sciences 49 titles, Business and management 43 titles, Computer science 85 titles, Economics and finance 47 titles, Engineering 61 titles, Literature, cultural and media studies 51 titles,  Medicine 67 titles, Political science and international studies 45 title, Social sciences 63 titles), Wiley monographs (58 titles), CNP monographs (1176 titles) and Superstar. Chinamaxx online monographs (37 titles).
Note on Naxos: Following up on last month’s update, SCP has identified approximately 20,000 records to delete from our collective catalogs and approximately 35,000 to add as new.  This sounds like an easy fix but it is not.  The Naxos collections frequently overlap with Alexander Street collections, especially in the subject areas of classical and jazz.  SCP must be careful not to delete viable Alexander Street records while at the same time preventing the creation of duplicate records with the new Naxos content.  Time will always be a factor and SCP appreciates your continued patience.
DDA Programs: DDA programs with number changed as of today, July 10, 2019: Airiti DDA (3,460 discovery records + 785 purchased titles), JSTOR CDL DDA pilot (6,801 discovery records + 1,364 purchased titles), CNPeReading CDL DDA online monographs (5,625 discovery records + 132 purchased titles), Maruzen eBook Library online monographs (311 purchased titles). DDA Programs with no change: CRC Press ENGnetBASE online monographs (406 purchased titles (2013 package (105 titles), 2014 package (64 titles), 2015 package (133 titles), and 2016 package (104 titles)), EBSCO Japanese DDA (466 purchased titles), and YBP/Ebrary online monographs via ProQuest (665 purchased titles).
At the end of 2018-2019, SCP has cataloged and managed:

Databases:  1,136 records; 1,165 package links
Monographs: 979,930 records; 997,705 package links
Serials:  91,727 records; 123,615 package links

Note on SCP serials cataloging: We are into the fourth month of Phase I of implementing separate record approach, limited to SCP new serials titles and related records only. For the implementation of Phase II, i.e., retrospective changes for existing titles on print records to records for online version, SCP plans to discuss with SCP-AC members at its meeting in July. We will announce it once the implementation date is set. Please check this CDLINFO article for more details.
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 CDL web team for action, 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.
