The Open library project has the goal of cataloging and thus having one web page for every book ever published.

To date, they have gathered over 20 million records from a variety of large catalogs as well as single contributions, with more on the way. They currently also have a over 1,000,000 free ebook titles available.

Open Library is an open project: the software is open source, the data are open, the documentation is open, and they welcome your contribution.

Open Library is a project of the non-profit Internet Archive, and has been funded in part by a grant from the California State Library and the Kahle/Austin Foundation.
