The NGTS cataloging pilot reached a milestone on Monday, June 10th, when SCP distributed the first set of records cataloged by staff at UC Irvine, about 170 Wiley e-books. UCI will continue sending SCP records every couple of weeks.

For journals, EBSCO (165 titles), JSTOR (130 titles), Open Access (119 titles), ScienceDirect (58 titles), and Wiley-Blackwell (29 titles) represented our highest distributions. Springer once again topped the list for the most monograph titles distributed – 472. Our other significant monograph distributions were for SuperStar (433 titles), CRC Press (106 titles), IEEE (79 titles), and ScienceDirect analytics (53 titles). For CRC Press titles you’ll find that several new 793 hooks are being used in order to track and distinguish the 2013 purchases from past acquisitions. These new 793s parallel existing 793s except that “2013-” has been appended at the end of the older hook, e.g.:

  • existing hook: CRC Press. ENGnetBASE online monographs
  • new hook: CRC Press. ENGnetBASE online monographs 2013-
