WorldCat Adds Holdings From China

The Shanghai Library contributed 2 million holdings to WorldCat—including about 770,000 unique bibliographic records—making the library’s collection available worldwide. The records are for books and journals published between 1911 and 2013.

“The leadership of Shanghai Library has a bold global vision,” says Andrew H. Wang, VP of OCLC Asia Pacific. “The addition of Shanghai Library’s holdings and unique records enriches coverage of the Chinese collection in WorldCat for researchers everywhere.”

As the largest public library in China and one of the largest libraries in the world, the Shanghai Library has more than 53 million volumes of Chinese literature and historical documents.
