Note on status of SCP cataloging requests: SCP received an inquiry recently that if a requester will be notified when a requested title being cataloged. No. currently SCP does not have automatic mechanism to notify requester when a requested title or collection of titles being cataloged. However, SCP provides an active link “Status” to cataloging request status pages for both new collection/database and OA journal titles on SCP webpage next to the request forms, also listed below in the “Useful links”. Anyone can click on “Status” to check the status such as SCP’s recommendation, JSC decision, and cataloging status. For OA journals, title in green highlight indicates the title is cataloged. For new collection/database, title in green highlight indicates database level cataloging is done, yellow highlight indicates title level cataloging is done.

Note on SCP web pages: as part of CDL website migration, SCP web pages are in a soft freeze period; all updates are sent to CDL web team, so there will be some delay on keeping current with E-resource tracking page, record distribution statistics, etc.

Please note: Some of the Shared Cataloging Program records you receive may be the result of a batch cataloging process. They may not meet the standards for full-level records.

Please report to CDL Helpline on

  • SCP cataloging delay: If any librarian and staff notice a particular title that seems to have been delayed in cataloging for more than three months, please report to CDL Helpline. SCP catalogers are very good at keeping track of the titles/collections they catalog, most packages updated on a quarterly basis. However, a title could have been missed in listing on the vendor title list, SFX has not been activated, missing OCLC record, to name a few. It usually takes about two-three months for OCLC records become available or for SFX to become ready for activation when new titles added to an existing collection. Longer than three months is a good cue that the title may not have appeared on a cataloger’s radar. Reporting via CDL Helpline will help resolve the issue.
  • SCP cataloging errors: If any librarian and staff notice an error in a SCP catalog record, please report to CDL Helpline. Because most of SCP monographic records you receive may be the result of a batch cataloging process. Reporting via  CDL Helpline will help correct the record.

SCP monthly update December 2018

SCP will post the distribution statistics report for the month of November at this page soon. This monthly report shows net increase or decrease of titles from CDL licensed and selected open access collections. For serials distributions, SCP has been focusing on cataloging open access titles, nearing the finish line on cataloging the collection of State Public Historical Library (Russia) online journals (adding 109 titles), thanks again for the cooperation of Peter and Kevin Balster’s student from UCLA. As a result, distributed Open Access journal (147 titles, includes 31 individual open access title requests). Other distribution also include: JSTOR journals (33 titles).

For monographs, our major record distributions were: ACM Digital Library online conference proceedings (87 titles), Cambridge online monographs (190 titles), Elsevier monographs (53 titles in 16 subsets), IEEE Xplore online conference proceedings (89 titles), JSTOR online monographs (410 titles), Open access monographs (58 titles, includes: JSTOR 16 titles, Luminos 28 titles, and OAPEN 9 titles), SPIE online monographs (650 titles, includes: conference proceedings 599 titles and eBooks 51 titles), and SpringerLink monographs (1712 titles, includes a new subject subset: Intelligent technologies and robotics monographs 156 titles; also includes: Computer science 144 titles, Earth and environmental science 236 titles, Energy 58 titles, Engineering 417 titles, Medicine 129 titles, Political science and international studies 227 titles, Social sciences 160 titles, and titles in 12 other subsets).

A note on cataloging about 600 titles of SPIE conference proceedings: Becky Culbertson enlisted Donal O’Sullivan’s help in creating an OCLC macro that helps supply commonly required codes and data elements to OCLC vendor records in addition to the manual enhancement of certain fields. Eventually subject analysis will be done at a later date. Kate loaded the records in batch to get records ready for distribution. This SPIE conference proceedings cataloging project is a snapshot on how SCP catalogers collaborate and get cataloging done in the least amount time possible while keeping on-going with their other regular duties. The macro Donal developed was also modified and adopted recently by Annie Ross for cataloging IEEE conference proceedings.

DDA Programs: SCP has sent the Airiti CDL DDA online monographs titles through OCLC DataSync processing. These Airiti DDA records will appear with a 599 NEW in the Monday 12/3 monos file, and will contain OCLC numbers in the 001 field. These are replacing the Airiti records containing the “p” vendor number in the 001 field, which are being sent as DELetes in the 12/3 file. We will no longer need to post special files/loads for Airiti DDA records in the future. DDA programs with number changed as of today: Airiti DDA (3,279 discovery records + 630 purchased titles), and JSTOR CDL DDA pilot (4,914 discovery records + 662 purchased titles). DDA Programs with no change: CNPeReading CDL DDA online monographs (4,300 discovery records + 34 purchased titles), CRC Press ENGnetBASE online monographs 407 purchased titles (2013 package (105 titles), 2014 package (64 titles), 2015 package (134 titles), and 2016 package (104 titles)), EBSCO Japanese DDA 466 purchased titles, and YBP/Ebrary online monographs via ProQuest 665 purchased titles.

Note on reporting SCP cataloging delay: If any librarian and staff notice a particular title that seems to have been delayed in cataloging for more than three months, please report to CDL Helpline. SCP catalogers are very good at keeping track of the titles/collections they catalog, most packages updated on a quarterly basis. However, a title could have been missed in listing on the vendor title list, SFX has not been activated, missing OCLC record, to name a few. It usually takes about two-three months for OCLC records become available or for SFX to become ready for activation when new titles added to an existing collection.

Holiday closure: Due to UCSD holiday closure, SCP will post the last SCP files for the 2018 calendar year on Monday December 17th. Weekly file distribution will then resume on Monday, January 7, 2019. We wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

SCP monthly update November 2018

SCP will post the distribution statistics report for the month of October at this page soon. This monthly report shows net increase or decrease of titles from CDL licensed and selected open access collections. For serials distributions, SCP finished the major update on additions, withdrawals, and embargo changes for journal titles in all the EBSCOhost databases. The changes for October were 83 new titles added (include Academic search complete 80 titles) and 23 titles removed. Upon finishing EBSCO update, cataloging open access journals has been the focus in October, catching up most of the requests. As a result, distributed Open Access journal (259 titles, includes DOAJ, 61 titles, and two new collections: Revistas cientificas complutenses online journals 92 titles and State Public Historical Library (Russia) online journals 30 titles). This latter collection is a group of Russian Revolutionary journals from the first half of the twentieth century. Peter Fletcher from UCLA cooperated with us in obtaining good print or microfilm records useful in derive separate electronic records. He has continued to help us when we have Cyrillic transliteration questions. Eventually this collection will grow to become 187 titles. We very much appreciate the cooperation of Peter and Kevin Balster’s student.

Another major serials distribution were two new Chinese collections: Chinese periodical journals (20068 titles) and Late Qing dynasty periodical full-text database (1833-1911) online journals (297 titles). Bie-Hwa Ma, Chinese metadata librarian, has been working long and hard, as well as team up with University of Michigan persuading the content provider to provide title list with metadata that met the basic of CDL technical requirements, such as title ID, url (still encrypted after long-term negotiation), summary, more detailed coverage, parallel Romanization element, etc. These two collections are also the guinea pig for SCP testing out adding records to OCLC via DataSync Service. SCP-AC members’ support on making exception to use separate record approach made it possible for SCP using OCLC DataSync to add these two collections to OCLC. Bie-Hwa had been working together with Kate Garvey-Clasby and Donal O’Sullivan, two SCP batch operation experts, developed sophisticated MarcEdit task list to convert vendor title lists into MARC records, tested out in June with 100 records, and sent the complete file of 20,385 records to OCLC DataSync in late September. Bie-Hwa also applied for a new MARC source code to store the title ID and content provider in MARC 024 field, for example: 024_7 $aW_29629 $2cnbksy. The new source code provides additional identifier to discovery and access to these two collections. Although there are some duplicated records generated and problem records need to fix, the overall result is positive and majority of records were distributed to campus. It takes a village to provide access to such a complex Chinese language package. Thanks to everyone, especially Bie-Hwa and Kate!

For monographs, our major record distributions were: ACM monographs (79 titles, include conference proceedings 78 titles), ASCE Library monographs (48 titles, include conference proceedings 44 titles), Cambridge online monographs (307 titles), CRC Press. CRCnetBASE online monographs (316 titles), Elsevier monographs (117 titles in 20 subsets), IEEE Xplore online conference proceedings (343 titles), JSTOR online monographs (375 titles), Knovel Library online monographs (53 titles), Open access monographs (322 titles, includes: eScholarship online monographs 26 titles and SpringerLink online monographs 290 titles), SIAM online monographs (11 titles), SpringerLink monographs (397 titles, includes: Biomedical and life sciences 39 titles, Computer science 131 titles, Medicine 50 titles, and titles in 15 other subsets), and Wiley online monographs (77 titles).

DDA programs with number changed as of today: Airiti DDA (3,370 discovery records + 630 purchased titles), and JSTOR CDL DDA pilot (4,773 discovery records + 623 purchased titles). DDA Programs with no change: CNPeReading CDL DDA online monographs (4,300 discovery records + 34 purchased titles), CRC Press ENGnetBASE online monographs 407 purchased titles (2013 package (105 titles), 2014 package (64 titles), 2015 package (134 titles), and 2016 package (104 titles)), EBSCO Japanese DDA 466 purchased titles, and YBP/Ebrary online monographs via ProQuest 665 purchased titles.

Note on SCP web pages: as part of CDL website migration, SCP web pages are in a soft freeze period; all updates will be sent to CDL web team, so there will be some delay on keeping current with E-resource tracking page, record distribution statistics, etc. There were questions about the SCP note at the end of SCP monthly update on batching cataloging and the scope of SCP records not meet the standard for full-level records. Here were the statistics Kate Garvey-Clasby provided based on data pulled at the end of September:

77% of SCP monos contain at least one LC subject heading. The bulk of those that lack LCSH come from the collections below (mostly old vendor sets), with ECCO being by far the largest

Gale. Eighteenth century collections online monographs (ECCO)—130,467
Early English books online monographs—12,753
Naxos music library online audio—11,530
Early American imprints online monographs. Series I—7,625
Early American imprints online monographs. Series II—5,415
Gale. Nineteenth century collections online monographs—5,044
Airiti CDL DDA online monographs—3,201
CNPeReading CDL DDA online monographs—3,127
88% of SCP serials contain at least one LC subject heading. Great attention is paid to the verification/addition of ISSN information including MARC 022, 222, and 776 fields. The bulk of those that don’t are the Dacheng online journals brief records (6,822 as expected). This number will go up as the Minguo periodicals are added, again this is to be expected.

The less-than-full records are mostly from OCLC (including vender records added to OCLC), including DOAJ titles. Because of the annual CONSER cataloging project, full-level DOAJ titles will eventually overlay DOAJ less-than-full brief records via OCLC daily updates. SCP also creates less-than-full records, currently most for Chinese packages, based on vendor title lists, such as newly added Chinese periodical journals. For these less-than-full records, SCP relies on OCLC daily update and set the criteria to receive notification if OCLC records updated to full, RDA, or added subject headings, etc. The updated records are re-distributed to campuses. If any records get manually cataloged, it would bring up to full level by PCC BSR standard. For Chinese packages, Bie-Hwa Ma takes leadership established several cooperative cataloging teams, one team on one collection modeling CONSER DOAJ project, with catalogers from several CEAL libraries who have subscription to at least one of several collections. Once records update to full-level, they will be re-distributed. For example, about 400 full-level serials records for Dacheng collection were recently re-distributed. Records re-distribution doesn’t reflect in SCP monthly updates.

We also rely on error reports we received via CDL helpline as well as from UCSD users and catalogers.

Please note: Some of the Shared Cataloging Program records you receive may be the result of a batch cataloging process. They may not meet the standards for full-level records.

Our major serial record distributions were EBSCO journals (61 titles, includes Academic search complete online journals, 38 titles), JSTOR online journals, (57 titles), and Open Access journals (130 titles, includes DOAJ, 91 titles). There was also a major transition for LexisNexis academic online journals becoming Nexis Uni online journals. The preparation for this project started in August that involves comparing title lists between LexisNexis and Nexis Uni, updating linking in either SFX or PIDs for matched titles, removing titles that are no longer available under Nexis Uni, and adding new titles. As a result, 2,502 titles have been migrated, and 1,140 titles were removed in December. New titles will be cataloged and distributed in the coming months.

Starting January 2018, EBSCO Japanese DDA came to an end due to an unexpected change. We learned that EBSCO decided not to renew their contract with Kinokuniya as agent for 2018, and consequently many Japanese publishers cancelled their business contracts with EBSCO. As a result, a long list of Japanese e-books that have become unavailable because EBSCO lost distribution rights for those e-books, and the DDA program couldn’t continue. At this point, our users can freely access 416 DDA purchased e-books in our OPACs, Melvyl, and EBSCOhost. SCP removed all 2,272 DDA discovery records. Other DDA programs with number changed as of today: CNPeReading CDL DDA online monographs (2,543 discovery records + 34 purchased titles) and JSTOR CDL DDA pilot (2,102 discovery records + 186 purchased titles).

Update on Dacheng online journals [大成老旧刊全文数据库]. To increase cataloging efficiency and meet user need of instant access to big sets of Chinese e-resources, Bie-hwa Ma has initiated several cooperative cataloging projects among CEAL member libraries. Dacheng was the first one launched in 2016 by four partners from Stanford University, University of Washington, University of Hong Kong, and SCP.

Initially, around 6,970 brief records were distributed to campuses in 2013. We are going to replace these brief records with OCLC records contributed by the 4 participating libraries. Dacheng‘s workflow has been adjusted to facilitate the effort as follows:

  1. Bie-hwa identifies the titles with and without OCLC copy.
  2. Bie-hwa adds encoding level 3 (brief) records into OCLC for those titles without OCLC copy
  3. Participating libraries identify and enhance any existing OCLC records
  4. Once the cataloging of the initial title list is finished, these records will be added as a collection in OCLC Collection Manager.
  5. Brief records may be upgraded at this time by the participating libraries. In addition, new titles may be added. SCP will set up to receive automated notification of updates via OCLC Collection Manager.

As a result, 2,011 level-3 records with OCLC numbers have been distributed to campuses in the Dec. 2016 SCP file to replace the previously created brief records. Please note that most of these records have no coverage. They will be added at the time of cooperative full level cataloging. From now on, campuses will benefit from receipt of increasing number of records from this project.

Other Chinese Collaboration Cataloging projects. Another project is the Chinese periodical full-text database (1911-1949) [民国时期期刊] (25,000 titles) participated by four libraries from University of Michigan, Stanford University, University of Washington, and SCP. This will follow the same workflow model of Dacheng project.

The third project is China Academic Journals (CAJ). Since University of Hong Kong Library has finished the cataloging of CAJ and shared all of the OCLC numbers of records for CAJ titles including title changes, partners will identify and export the records they want on their own. SCP will soon export around 1,500 free full-level records that have not cataloged before due to hidden title changes, a major task on Bie-hwa’s to-do list since the initial cataloging was completed in 2009.
