Back in April I wrote about the national* symbol for libraries and its implications. I created an updated version for the post and for some Creating the Future for Libraries notebooks.

A few people asked me if they could use the image and inquired about the license. Finally I’ve gotten around to putting a license on it. Note that while attribution is included in the license, please consider it optional. By the way, why isn’t there a “no attribution” option?

Here’s a .zip with the following file formats: JPG, PNG, Illustrator: CFL Library Symbol.

*It is interesting that ALA calls it the national symbol. I guess they can’t declare it the universal symbol, but I’ve seen it used all over the place.
