The Shared Cataloging Program (SCP) provides catalog records for the University of California campus libraries. Established in January 2000, the program is based at UC San Diego.
The main goals of the SCP are to ensure the representation of CDL-licensed materials in UC campus integrated library systems and (through the campus ILSs) to Melvyl® in a timely fashion, to maintain the currency of subscriber and coverage data, to eliminate the redundancy of cataloging efforts among the UC campuses, and to keep links current through the use of persistent identifiers.
