Congratulations to CDL’s current Shared Cataloging Program (SCP) staff and former SCP staff member, Renee Chin, on the recent publication of their article, “One for Nine Ten: Cataloging for Consortia Collections, a UC model”, in the journal Cataloging & Classification Quarterly.

Abstract: In January 2000, the University of California created the Shared Cataloging Program (SCP). Based at the University of California, San Diego, the SCP is a “centralized cataloging model” for the California Digital Library consortium collections. This article will take an evolutionary look at the perpetual challenges of sustaining a consortial cataloging model and highlight the efforts of the SCP in the ongoing quest to eliminate the redundancy of efforts by centralizing the optimization of cataloging efficiency.
