SCP Update – April 2021

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 March 2021.

SCP Overview 

Monthly Updates 

The following chart and table show the overall SCP cataloging activities and workload in March 2021. There is one new tier 2 collection added in March:  Gale Women’s Studies Archive, Voice and Vision online monographs. See CDLINFO article for more details. Also major distributions of serials and monographs are highlighted below. There is a net decrease of Naxos audio that is a result of the cleanup based on Alma duplicate/multi-matches report.

In order for SCP staff to have enough time to prepare SCP and MARCIVE records for SILS Cutover migration, the last weekly file distributions to each of ten campuses were on Monday, March 29, 2021. This change marks the end of 21+ years of SCP’s weekly file distributions; see History of SCP Weekly File Distributions (1999-2021). CDL Helpline/SCP has created a Google sheet to track CDL Helpline requests that have impact on access and result in record deletion, non-PIDs/BIBPURL URL changes, serials coverage update, etc. Serials Phase II for Chinese titles switched from print to online is also posted on the same Google sheet under the tab “Chinese serials phase II”. See CDLINFO article for details.

SCP cataloging operations are significantly reduced and most eBooks cataloging are suspended. As a result, there will be a delay in providing catalog records for many eBook collections for approximately two quarterly cycles, March-July 2021. During this interim period, all access will be available on content platforms. Post-migration, all content will be made available on Alma/Primo VE via SFX/360 and partial SCP data migration. Although it’s very challenging, SCP staff plans to work on cataloging of Elsevier journal titles and hopes to make at least one special file distribution as part of the CDL newly licensed resource launch process. SCP will continue to accept cataloging requests for new collections, and will hold off reviewing and making recommendation to JSC and UC CKGs until post-migration. SCP will also continue to accept individual OA Journal request, and may put on hold as well. We appreciate your understanding and support.
