Promote WorldCat in your library
Once your users see what WorldCat can do for them—whether they find it through WorldCat Discovery, WorldCat.org or an API-powered partner site—they'll soon see the value and start telling their friends, which in turn sends more traffic to your site. You can kick-start that viral spread when you promote your collection's availability in WorldCat.
Customize these free WorldCat promotional materials and make them your own. Available for print and online use, they're simple, colorful and fun.
