OCLC Debuts List of Top 100 Most Widely Available Novels in Libraries

OCLC rolled out The Library 100: Top Novels of All Time, a list of the 100 novels that are most widely available in all types of libraries (in various versions, editions, and translations). Don Quixote comes in at number one. The ranking is based on data from WorldCat, which aggregates information from 18,000-plus library collections around the world to cover more than 447 million titles.

“Of course, the list of top novels emphasizes classics,” says Skip Prichard, OCLC’s president and CEO, “and so reflects dominant cultural views over the years about the canon and its formation. Librarians are aware of this and are more mindful than ever of the need to think critically about their collections. Librarians are actively seeking out and preserving overlooked, minority and marginalized perspectives.”

For more information, read the press release and Prichard’s blog post.
