While it is interesting to look at I don't see how it could be a good
collection development tool for a school library.  I would imagine that
most OCLC libraries are academic or very large public libraries.  I
noticed while skimming the first part of the list that the first novel
less than twenty years old is Harry Potter at around 250.  The first
encyclopedia is World Book at 120 or so.  Most of what I saw on the list
was classics like _Grapes of Wrath_ that most every library already has
or works like _The Nature of Things_ by Lucretius that would probably
never be read in a high school library.  I would think a better
comparison source would be Wilson's catalogs.
