Hundred Millionth Record
The hundred millionth record was added to OCLC WorldCat today (Thursday, March 29) around lunchtime. It is a "K-level" record for:
It's a Horse's Life: Advice and Observations for the Humans Who Choose To Share It, by Joanne M. Friedmann.
The record was created by Library Connection, Inc., a non-profit cooperative of 27 public and academic libraries in Central Connecticut.
By 1:47 p.m., an additional 153,264 records had been added to WorldCat, so it is growing by leaps and bounds. You can Watch WorldCat Grow.
The K-level thing reminds me - we're planning a webinar on minimal-level cataloging. Different kinds of less-than-full cataloging, when or why to do it, how to do it, what to do with those records when you find them in WorldCat ... that sort of thing. We should be announcing it soon. Keep an eye out.
