The initial phase of the WorldCat Library Profile feature launched in mid-May and is now off and running.
The following are some interesting stats from the 'Recent Items added by this library to WorldCat' area:


• There were 13,689 libraries that added a new item to WorldCat in May.

• Of those, 1,099 did not have existing recent items lists from April, so WorldCat automatically created a new list.


• 12,590 recent items lists were updated (for libraries that had new items in both April and May).

• The most popular item added to WorldCat in May, added by 2,245 libraries, was Dying To Meet You: 43 Old Cemetery Road.

We are still working to resolve the issue for those libraries that cannot yet view their profile. We hope to have a fix in place very soon and apologize for the inconvenience.
