During the fourth quarter of 2012, SCP added access for 894 serials and 7,202 monographs. There were 4 new serial and 8 new monograph packages established for catalog tracking purposes. These included entries for the Cambridge Companions to Literature, IET Library, Scribner Writers, Twayne’s Authors, and ASTM. The complete statistics for the number of titles cataloged for each SCP package are now posted on the SCP website –  http://www.cdlib.org/services/collections/scp/docs/2012q4.pdf. The statistics in this document show the total number of titles cataloged for each package as of December 16, 2012, as well as the net change from the previous quarter, if any.

Until next month …
