Year

Abstract
OCLC has grown from 54 libraries, in 1971, to 17.000 libraries, in 1993; from the stae of Ohio to 47 countries around the world, and from annual revenues of $ 67.000 to almost 100 million dollars. In addition to cataloging, OCLC now provides a broad range of products and services in resource sharing, reference and electronic publishing. The Forest Press Divison of OCLC publishes the Dewey Decimal Classification. OCLC also operates MAPS, the MicrogrAphic Preservation Service, a non proft corporation based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, that provides high quality preservation microfilmimg for libraries. Information Dimensions, Inc. (IDI), a for profit subsidiary acquired in Apr 93, develops and markets computer software products for managing electronic documents and text on leading mainframe computers, microcomputers, workstations, and PCs. IDI provides OCLC with an important strategic position in full text electronic publishing, electronic archiving and information management: 3 areas of growing importance in OCLC's future
