We’re celebrating #WorldCat50! On this day in 1971, librarians at Ohio University‘s Alden Library were the first to catalog bibliographic records online using WorldCat.Today, WorldCat is the world’s most comprehensive database of information about library collections with:
3.1 billion holdings
516 million records
483 languages from 250 countries or jurisdictions
And, it’s growing every second thanks to YOU!
Congratulations to the 42,000 libraries and institutions worldwide who have contributed to this amazing resource! #OCLCworldcat
