New From OCLC Research: The Top 10 Most Widely Held Love Stories in Libraries (Books and Movies)
To help celebrate Valentines Day, JD Shipengrover and Diane Vizine-Goetz from OCLC Research used WorldCat holdings to generate two “lovely” lists:
1. Top 10 Most Widely Held Love Stories in Libraries (Books)
2. Top 10 Most Widely Held Love Stories in Libraries (Movies)

OCLC points out that these lists were generated today (February 13, 2014) and are, “based on the number of OCLC member libraries that own at least one copy of the given book or movie (holdings). The Love Stories genre was used to find top books and the Romances Films genre was used to determine top movies.”
Finally, OCLC’s Vice President, Research, and Chief Strategist, Lorcan Dempsey offers a bit more about how these lists were constructed on his blog.
We love lists around here and hope we see more of them from OCLC and other data providers.
