OCLC Global Library Statistics page

In order to satisfy numerous requests for statistics about the worldwide library community OCLC created the Global Library Statistics page for use by the entire library community. The interactive page includes data for the total number of libraries, librarians, volumes, expenditures and users for every country and territory in the world broken down into the major library types: academic, public, school, special and national. The service was originally a joint project of OCLC Research and the OCLC Library, and Research has contributed to its development.
