Library on Wheels. Like 2 likes. Footer Menu. Or do you wan to just keep the same section heads. A review of this book states: "this work is well positioned to earn a valuable place on the shelves of academic and public libraries as well as those of professional historians". Point being, Carnegie's purpose when lending the money was to get municipalities to start funding libraries, which they overwhelmingly did not, like they funded hospitals and police stations. Any objections on putting it it? Regina M. Anderson solicited the help of W.
A boycott ensued and she was promoted. This belongs in the article. It's cited in Schomburg. Some of them are online.
They look to be primary source stuff, maybe they should be included in links, maybe not: Bulletin of the New York Public Library LeClerc's reorganization of the library has been very controversial, and a lot of people have published critiques of it. I'd like to see a good short bibliography of comprehensive articles available free online, but the last good one I just saw was:. The critical articles are very good because they highlight the real issues facing the library, like research vs.
In addition, Peterson's article like many of the others is a nice comprehensive history of the library, with interesting relevant facts, like.
It would be nice to integrate these into the entry, but the issues are massively complicated. The NYPL obviously has some form of administration, and its managers presumably must answer to some kind of authority, whether that be a department of the city government, a State-appointed board, or some other body; but there is nothing in the article to let us know how the library is run, or by whom.
We know that the city has the power to slash the library's budget, and we're given the names and titles of a few people in the administration who have made controversial decisions; but the article gives readers very little information about how the library is governed, how those decisions are made, how the decision-makers are appointed, and by whom, and how they might be removed and replaced—important information for a public institution in a democracy.
The section on "Collection Development" rather awkwardly shoots off on a tangent about the rich, white, male, Protestant directors who dominated the institution at some point in its history, but we need a separate section on the evolution of the library's management, and another on its current administration. Jdcrutch talk , 24 September UTC. I had clicked on the edit window to fix the "items collected" line, but then I realized I'm not sure what to change it to.
Suggestions welcome. Newyorkbrad talk , 22 May UTC. I tried editing the Infobox but maybe it's protected. She really should be mentioned for I believe that much of the library's strategic direction is emanating from her office.

The legal existance of the NYPL needs to be flushed out.
Can someone provide or put these works on the Internet? Apparently this is asking too much of the NYPL. The Further reading section needs to be cleaned up. It comprises a quarter of the article, as seen here. Should the "Further reading" section of this article contain 63 citations to other websites and sources? If not, should it be reduced in size? But in general, no, we should not have such a "Further reading" list. Wikipedia:Further reading is an essay, but it's a valuable one, and its first sentence is clear enough: "The further reading section of an article contains a bulleted list, usually alphabetized, of a reasonable number of works which a reader may consult for additional and more detailed coverage of the subject of the article.
