Celebrating 45 years of WorldCat

Aug
26

DUBLIN, Ohio, August 26, 2016—Today is the 45th anniversary of the launch of WorldCat, the world’s most comprehensive database of information about library collections.

On August 26, 1971, the OCLC Online Union Catalog (now known as WorldCat) began operation. From a single terminal, catalogers at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, were able to catalog 133 books online that day. Today, WorldCat comprises more than 380 million records representing more than 2.4 billion titles in libraries worldwide.
