De Rosa's presentation explores the following hypothesis for the report:

U.S. public libraries are facing marketing and advocacy challenges that have been faced by other 'super brands.' Lessons learned and successes achieved can be applied to increase library funding. Utilizing marketing and advocacy techniques targeted to the right community segments with the right messages and community programs, we can improve the state of public library funding.
