World Wide Library Holdings of Chesterton Works

From Ellen:
Hi Nancy,

I came across an interesting GKC source on the internet today, and it might be of interest to your blog readers.

Or simply, go here, search G.K. Chesterton.

It is a public catalog listing of holdings of all libraries that subscribe to a cataloging database once known as OCLC. It is a good source to find books, check titles, etc.

I looked at the GK Chesterton page, and it had all kinds of neat features, including a publications "timeline", works in other languages, etc. Remember, this lists LIBRARY HOLDINGS, not everything everywhere, but it is an interesting resource, I think.

Or a great timewaster.

Or blog fodder.
Thanks, Ellen!
