Making the case for libraries
OCLC's new campaign calls attention to their value
OCLC has launched an advocacy advertising campaign on behalf
of OCLC members and the larger library community. The campaign
is meant to raise the visibility and highlight the viability
of libraries to their funding bodies.

it lets them play. The ads reinforce the idea that you serve
students and faculty both inside and outside the library.
