WorldCat - http://www.oclc.org/worldcat/default.htm

WorldCat is the world's largest bibliographic database, the merged catalogs of thousands of OCLC member libraries. Built 
and maintained collectively by librarians, WorldCat itself is not an OCLC service that is purchased, but rather provides 
the foundation for many OCLC services and the benefits they provide.

61 million quality records and counting

WorldCat-listed resources span thousands of years and nearly every form of human expression. Records exist for 
everything from stone tablets to electronic books, wax recordings to MP3s, DVDs and Web sites. Whether an item is 
physical or digitally preserved, popular or one-of-a-kind, the integrity of its record is maintained by the input of 
cataloging members, our standards and quality control.
