How many different kinds of mammals are in the world today?

Hello I am a graduate student working on a library degree and am happy to look into your question. I found an answer provided by the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles.
How many species of mammals are there?
According to Mammal Species of the World, 3rd Edition (Wilson and Reeder 2005), the most recent authoritative published checklist of modern mammal species, there are 5,416 different species of mammals. However, the exact number of recognized mammal species fluctuates as new species are described and as scientists make other taxonomic revisions.
