Share this on social media:

US-based not-for-profit computer library service, the Online Computer Library Centre (OCLC), claims its electronic books catalogue, 'NetLibrary', now offers more than 200 000 eBooks and eAudiobooks.

The organisation believes its electronic content platform is the first to offer this number of titles to academic, public, special and school library users. In total, NetLibrary now contains more than 190 000 eBooks and 12 000 eAudiobooks from more than 500 publishers worldwide.

'Reaching the 200 000-title mark shows OCLC’s continued commitment to electronic content and is a testament to the depth of our collections,' said Suzanne Kemperman, OCLC director of publisher relations.

The 200 000th title loaded to the NetLibrary catalogue was Schaum’s Outline of Mathematica by Eugene Don. Founded in 1967, OCLC is dedicated to furthering access to the world's information and reducing the rate of rise of library costs.
