8/18/2020 17:17:33Recommend for Q4 cataloging. Records are available. 8/24/2020DonalGetty Publications Virtual Library
Getty Publications Virtual Library MARC Records:
MARC records for the digital titles are also available in OCLC Connexion. These may be found by searching under the series: Getty Publications virtual library. MARC records for the associated print titles also contain links to the digital copies in the Getty Publications Virtual Library.
There are still relatively few eBooks in art and architecture and these Getty Publications are standard sources often used by students as part of course research projects. Adding the records to the digital versions of these books will facilitate their discovery and will reduce the need to respond to requests for chapter scans for reserves and research use.

4/15/2020 21:16:40Recommend for Q2DonalMIT OA monographs
These 6 ebooks are titles that we want in our catalog as there will be user demand for them. I was going to ask that UCI catalog them but realized other UC libraries probably also would like them. Jim Dooley at Merced agreed. MIT Press is well respected. We got as a Tier One the 2019 and 2020 ebook package from MIT Press Direct. I think systemwide we want to make sure these books are discoverable so that we can help support the OA efforts of MIT.
I'm not sure. The press release says "the publication of the first Arcadia-funded books..." which makes it sound like there will be more, but how many, I can't say. MIT wants to create a model that the "university press community can adopt and adapt."

Open Access On MUSE
"Project MUSE has over 1000 open access humanities and social science books available on our platform, all from distinguished scholarly presses and societies." There are also 5 journals. Much of the content is already available OA through other channels and I'm particularly not worried if they're already cataloged as OA on JSTOR. However, I've spotchecked and found enough titles that are not cataloged at UC San Diego that it seems worth doing this as a project, though.
