I use VIAF regularly. If you do a keyword search for notes with “VIAF” in the authority file in OCLC Connexion, you can find lots of examples，such as:

Dear NACO brains:
Two questions about sources for NARs:
1) is it ok to refer to VIAF in a 670?
2) what do people think about whether we can use the Google knowledge graph that sometimes appears at the top of a Google search?
