Cataloging single open access titles

Thanks to some sleuthing by Dana, David E. and Nga, a mystery has been unraveled. According to SCP:

"To request the cataloging of a single open access title not part of any specific collection send the request via the CDL Help Desk (helpline@cdlib.org). Provide the URL for the resource and a statement requesting SCP cataloging. Note, these "unreviewed" cataloging requests are of lowest cataloging priority and will be done as resources are available."

Wiley ebooks

Wiley is now posting newly published ebooks at the Wiley digital books resource site. Specifically, you can go to that page and download the "Just Published Titles" list.

Says a message from the Wiley sales director: "[We] will have access to all new Wiley Online Books with a 2013 print publication date that go online in 2013 as they are published rather than having to wait each month for activation. A bi-weekly list of the books that are newly published is available for you to download."

Please note that CDL will no longer be distributing the Wiley ebook title lists or posting the Wiley ebook lists at the CDL website.
