Summary
The overlap of global book collections in member libraries of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), as exemplified by an analysis of nearly 28.5 million records in a July 2004 snapshot of the OCLC WorldCat database, is not as extensive as expected. For all countries combined, excluding North America, the average number of ARL library holdings per bibliographic record is fewer than five, that is, fewer than five ARL libraries own copies of the book represented by the bibliographic record. For each of ten world regions, excluding North America, the average number of ARL library holdings per bibliographic record ranges from a low of 2.99 for East Asian books to a high of 6.28 for Latin American books. That is, on average fewer than three and only slightly more than six ARL libraries hold any book that was published outside of North America
