Updated Library Symbol CC Licensed

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.

  1. At least in the finnish copyright law, the attribution -requirement is always present and actually it’s one of the creator’s rights that cannot be given away (what you call copyright in english, we call “creator’s right”, which is semantically different). All licenses work within the framework The Law sets, so at least here having an attribution clause in the license is redundant.
