OCLC Worldcat numbers thus far June 21, 2006

Posted by Mia in OCLC Worldcat.

This is an addendum with the raw numbers for the OCLC project:

486,033 total bib records up to an including May 31, 2006 processed by OCLC for inclusion;

24,829 Unresolved bib records, yet to be processed by OCLC for inclusion (what I refer to as Phase 2).  Ergo, about 5% of the bib records choke at the time of the first pass.  Some of these will be genuine originally-catalogued records (theses, MBA papers, etc.) for which we will, at some point, get a credit.

This is not synonomous with the number of items, of which we have far more in number (about a 1:3 or 1:4 rule of thumb ratio, trying to track that down).
