About the Project

Open Library is an open, editable library catalog, building towards a web page for every book ever published. More

Just like Wikipedia, you can contribute new information or corrections to the catalog. You can browse by subject, author or lists members have created. If you love books, why not help build a library?

Developers

If you’re even remotely interested in libraries or big data, we encourage you to have a look around the Open Library API.

We welcome any and all patches and data re-use.
