Highlights on Other Activities:

  • Meeting with GOBI representatives: Several SCP staff members and Sherry Lochhaas met with GOBI representatives on Sept. 26 to discuss questions regarding coverage gaps, record delays, and CDL licensed eBooks’s presentation in GobiTween (a GOBI system helping campuses identify CDL-held titles to avoid purchase of a duplicate copies). SCP learned more about GOBI’s workflows; their catalogers are given 30 days to provide records for eBooks in English language and 45 days for non-English upon receiving files from eBook providers. GOBI also suggested approaches that would help improve communication between CDL, GOBI and eBook providers, reconcile gaps, and update CDL holdings in GobiTween.
  • 930 $p code cleanup: We learned that local fields can only display one subfield, not both $a and $p. We drop the subfield code “$p” for newly added SCP records. For migrated records , clean up took longer than expected. Thanks to Kate Garvey-Clasby who has completed the removal of about 230,000 records, mostly MARCIVE records.
