Renee Chin has joined the CDL Shared Cataloging Project (SCP) in San Diego.  Her job will consist of systemically mining the publisher home pages of CDL-licensed resources to determine new and changed journals in addition to doing Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) maintenance.

The SCP catalogers are currently adding Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) to the CDL records (see CDLINFO Vol.3, No.6 [ href=”http://www.cdlib.org/news/cdlinfo/cdlinfo051600.html] for information about PIDs).  PIDs were first added to the current URLs and now the PIDs are replacing the URLs in the bibliographic records.  The transfers on the Company of Biologists, IEEE Xplore, Institute of Physics, Project Muse, Science, and Wiley records have been completed; Kluwer records are in process.  The goal is to complete all transfers by the end of June.
