SCP Monthly Update — September 2019

SCP has posted the distribution statistics report for the month of August 2019. This monthly report shows net increase or decrease of titles from CDL licensed and selected open access collections. They are color coded as: Net Increase (Green)Net Decrease (Red)New Package (Purple)Removed Package (Orange).

For serials, it has been another busy month cataloging end-of-year new acquisitions finishing the T&F journal archive and most titles of the Gale Sabin journals, cataloging more titles in the Cambridge journal archive, as well as planning and preparing for serials Phase II–converting print records to online records.  The major distributions were Cambridge online journals (84 titles), Gale. Sabin Americana, 1500-1926 online journals (1,205 titles), Taylor & Francis online journals  (14 titles), and China online journals (37 titles in 4 subject areas). We also added a new set of JapanKnowledge online journals (3 titles).

Note on SCP serials cataloging transition Phase II: On August 19, SCP distributed 860+ print serial records set for deletion with the usual 599: DEL|c1908xx.  These are records that should already have a distributed online counterpart SCP record. They are from all serials packages. The major net decrease for packages are highlighted here: EBSCO journals (372 titles: Academic search complete 180 titles, Business source complete 51 titles, CINAHL plus 22 titles, Education source 48 titles, Library literature & information science 20 titles, and MasterFILE premier 42 titles), Gale.

The serials Phase II transition by package will delay until after the EEBO URL switchover is complete.

  • 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.
