SCP Overview

Monthly Updates

The following chart and table show the overall SCP cataloging activities and workload in October. In addition, SCP staff have been busy with the SILS project, testing workflows in Vanguard and evaluating options to bring SCP legacy data from a siloed CDL Institution Zone into the Alma Network Zone, as well as adding MARC records for new content to Alma Network Zone.

As of October 24th 2020, SCP manages a total of:

  • Databases: 1,229 records; 1,238 package links
  • Monographs: 1,212,009 records; 1,238,812 package links
  • Serials: 91,162 records; 119,564 package links

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.
