OCLC Next: Recalibrating the WorldCat odometer

OCLC Next: Recalibrating the WorldCat odometer. “The 1,000,000,000 OCLC Control Number was recently created in WorldCat. It was for a digital image from the Chiba University Library (YA@) in Chiba, Japan. We knew this milestone was fast approaching, and we sent guidance to member libraries and to library vendors to prepare them for a tenth digit in the OCN.”
