Promoting WorldCat

Introduction [OCLC - WorldCat]: "the whole idea behind WorldCat, is a global library network that thousands of institutions rely upon because they have built it together over 30 years. Librarians and other information professionals continuously enrich and use this one-of-a-kind resource guided by the values of community, efficiency and trust, the same principles that motivated the creation of libraries themselves. These institutions join a larger community of libraries knowing it lets them better serve the people in their own local communities."

Promote your WorldCat investment [OCLC - WorldCat]: "Are your administrators or funding bodies familiar with your library's participation and visibility in WorldCat? Do your users know they can 'Find in a Library' from major Web search engines or When you build awareness of WorldCat with your patrons, you give your users a reason to come back to your library and your Web site for access to a unique resource. Below are materials that will familiarize your library's users with the WorldCat name and the capabilities it offers them."
