Other Activities

  • Update on getting eBook records from GOBI for Wiley, Cambridge, and Springer: SCP and CDL Acquisitions have been making progress with GOBI to have tech spec set up for these three eBook packages. 
  • Update on two Chinese journal collections from Shanghai Library: the Late Qing Dynasty Periodical Full-Text Database and  the Chinese Periodical Full-text Database in Alma Community Zone don’t provide title level access. Since June 2021, SCP (mainly Bie-hwa Ma) has discussed the issue with Shanghai Library first to get them to agree to contribute title level access of these two collections to Ex Libris, then she contacted Ex Libris to discuss techniques to prepare the title lists. Recently Bie-hwa finished creating a KBART file for each collection and sent them to the Shanghai Library. Once Ex Libris receives the list from Shanghai Library, it will be added to the queue to add to the CZ.

As the Christmas holiday season is approaching, SCP staff will be off work during UC San Diego Library closure from December 23-January 2. SCP staff wish everyone Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2021, stay safe and healthy!
