2005 Runners up

As with the original 2004 list, we had to extract a larger number of records from WorldCat in order to end up with the updated Top 1000 list, due to consolidation. The titles here didn't quite make the cut, but are still widely held by libraries around the world.

We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
