WorldCat is the world's largest online catalog of the holdings of books, journals, and other materials held by thousands of libraries. This database is the merged catalogs of over 50,000 member libraries in over 90 countries. Built and maintained collectively by librarians the database was created in 1971; as of 2005, it contains some 58 million records, referencing books in more than 360 languages. Web users can now search the entire WorldCat database with the method most familiar to them: simple keywords. Each linked result leads to a "Find in a Library" information page. From there, users can enter geographic information such as a zip or postal code, receive a list of nearby libraries that own the item, and link right to a library's online catalog record. Users can also create their own WorldCat account and add book reviews, table-of-contents information and notes to many WorldCat items, helping to personalize their library search experience.
