It is suggested that only material which has a specific reference tool value to the Library and/or to the Museum be purchased for the period after 1850.

22. new york city records

This collection includes a complete list of Directories (including business Direc­tories) and Guides. In addition, there are indexes to vital records, wills, newspa­per records, etc., as well as early reports of New York City religious, benevolent, charitable, social, fraternal, patriotic, etc., organizations. The collection comprises partial files of early city departmental reports (health, fire, education, police, etc.) together with printed records of the Minutes of the Common Council, Proceed­ings of the Board of Aldermen, etc. Added to the maps and atlases in the Map and Print Room the collection of New York City material, through the 19th century, is most comprehensive.

It is suggested that this material be added to whenever possible.

23. new york state records

Sets of official documents of colonial and state legislative journals, laws and executive documents, regional, county, city and town guides and directories and various institutional publications (large colleges and universities, local historical societies, etc.) comprise a cross-section of our New York State records. It is suggested that this material be added to whenever possible.

24. map and print collections

The map and print collections may be divided into eight general categories.


We have an unusually strong collection of broadsides through 1865. These items rarely come to the Library through donation and, as a result, must be acquired when possible through purchase. The broadsides we have, or buy supplement ma­terial in the field of printed books, e.g., War material, 18th century New York City proclamations, announcements, etc.

It is suggested that purchases in this area be determined on the basis of die field in which the broadsides belong. These fields might be determined according to the suggestions already listed in the foregoing paragraph.


This is a large and useful collection of material relating to political campaigns, both of New York and the nation, through 1910. The posters relate to such var­ied fields as the circus in America, outstanding events in the history of New York and items relating to the Spanish-American War. Unlike the broadside collec­tion we frequently receive gifts of material in this area.

It is suggested that we add to this collection as opportunity presents.


This collection consists of nine albums of photographs (the George Murdock Col­lection) of steamboats which traveled the Hudson River and Long Island Sound in the 19th century. Supplementing this collection are illustrations—in one form or other—of famous steamboats of the 19th century.

  • It is suggested that illustrations of American steamboats through 1920 be added to this collection.
  • It is also suggested that illustrations of steamboats identified with New York waters be added when available; irrespective of date.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
