I've never been overly fond of adding in the word Library and would have
simply used "Openclipart" as one word.  I have always tried to discourage
the use of the acronym as it only serves to obscure the project and make
publicity a little bit harder by hiding the meaning for to save a few
keystrokes and not something to be encouraged.

(the acronym is also already take but when aren't they
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OCAL )

It is wikipedia so I'll probably wade in and change it at some point if no
one beats me to it.

Avoid the acronym, and use the page name Openclipart or some variaton of
the words not the acronym.  Easier and clearer for everyone.

The page OCAL should really redirect to the page with a proper title not
the other way around.
