SCP Monthly Update — November 2019

SCP posted the distribution statistics report for the month of October 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)Package changed name or absorbed by/split into another package (Blue).

For serials, cataloging end-of-year new acquisitions continues to be our priority. Our major record distributions were EBSCO. CINAHL complete online journals (386 titles).

For serials cataloging transition Phase II, SCP strategized the workflow and tested it out with the first package, the Literature online (LION) online journals. Records switched in batch mode were included in the weekly serial distribution file for 191028 containing “rc” code (both 599 DEL$b rc for the print and 599 NEW$b rc for the online). The 15 remaining records in this package that needed manual review were included in the weekly serial distribution file for 191104. For the details about processing, please see the CDLINFO article and Phase II FAQ page.

For monographs, our major record distributions were: ACM monographs (118 titles, including conference proceedings 116 titles), CRCnetBASE online monographs (66 titles), Elsevier monographs (71 titles in 15 subjects), IEEE Xplore online conference proceedings (289 titles), JSTOR monographs (364 titles), Knovel Library online monographs (68 titles), Safari tech books online monographs (10 titles), SpringerLink monographs (606 titles in 18 subjects, including: Biomedical and life sciences 66 titles, Computer science 153 titles, Economics and finance 53 titles, Education 51 titles, and Medicine 75 titles), and CNPeReading online monographs (436 titles).

For the new collection Gale Archives of Sexuality & Gender, it is taking longer to process than expected. The reason is that over half the collection consists of unidentified or misidentified multi-part monographs. In every record where this is found, each URL has to be checked and it’s enumeration verified. The records will be distributed in smaller batches as they pass inspection. SCP asks for your continued patience.

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.
