Because Libraries don’t often notify self-published Authors about book purchases, one of the resources ESE, Inc. uses to find Libraries that have purchased its ESETOMES books is WorldCat, the World's most extensive library catalog; the Company shared today. WorldCat is a union catalog that itemizes the collections of 17,900 libraries in 123 countries and territories that participate in the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) global cooperative. Roughly thirty-five (35) percent of ESE, Inc.’s Library customers are listed on WorldCat, and the resource is the first place the Company goes to when it is reconciling its Library sales.
“Out of our current 84 Library customers, I would estimate less than ten have notified us of their purchases. While all Libraries are not WorldCat members, the members do an excellent job of updating the database. Through WorldCat, to date, we’ve been able to identify about twenty Libraries sales that we would not have been aware of were it not for the tool,” said ESE, Inc. CEO Eric Simmons.
