Knowledge connects the dots

Libraries connect people to the information they need to solve problems, push boundaries and shape the future. OCLC, a global library cooperative, supports thousands of libraries in making information more accessible and more useful to people around the world.

Together we make breakthroughs possible.

Because what is known must be shared.SM

A breakthrough in purpose.
