SCP Update – September 2020

For the detailed list of net increase or decrease of titles from CDL licensed and selected open access collections, see the distribution statistics report for August 2020.

SCP Overview

Monthly Updates

We added a chart to illustrate the monthly total distributions including records being updated and withdrawn, representing overall cataloging activities and workload in a given month as well as the total accumulated records SCP manages. In August chart below, the large number of new and withdrawn in serials records largely reflects the serials phase II project of switching bibliographic records for print format to online format. The large number of withdrawn in monographic records reflects the removing of the JSTOR CDL DDA Pilot corpus II discovery records (in order to add new Project Muse records) and O’Reilly online videos records. Over 10,000 updated monographic records are mostly from OCLC daily updates received during June-July, with enriched metadata such as subject heading(s) and/or other access point(s) added, records upgraded to full level, etc.

Cataloging Note

Routine cataloging by SCP may be delayed due to the migration to SILS, cataloging of new acquisitions, and reduced capacity due to the COVID-19 work from home recommendation. If a package is delayed over three months, or you have concerns regarding access to CDL content, please report to the CDL Helpline. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

CDL Helpline

Please report to CDL Helpline on

  • Cataloging Delays (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.
