Picking a book from a bookshelf is like walking into an airport and picking a destination off of the departures board—except that this departures board includes far more places than exist under our sun, and you can completely skip the jet lag. These eight favorites will take you on a trip, whether to a new world or to a place you’ve been many times before. http://on.nypl.org/1GzVz2k

Before there were hard drives, there were letterbooks. Check out what students can learn about the economy, business practices, and record keeping in early America by working with just one of these remarkable documents that we've digitized so you can access them anywhere in the world! http://on.nypl.org/1D5O9Yb
Letterbooks were the hard drives of their day. Businessmen and merchants used letterbooks to keep records of their business transactions. To learn about how everyday life worked in a given period, there really is no substitute for these and other manuscript sources.

Yeah, Marie Curie's papers are STILL radioactive (and will be for at least 1,500 years more). http://on.nypl.org/1Ip4z9V
Marie Curie, whom Google is celebrating Monday with a Google Doodle in honor of her 144th birthday, lived her life awash in ionizing radiation. More than a century later, her papers are still radioactive.

High school teachers in Mississippi turned their school's unused lockers into works of book-ish art. Now that's a quality learning environment! http://on.nypl.org/1U41jcp
