Biblion: World’s Fair is a free iPad app from the New York Public Library that showcases the library’s vast archive of materials from the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Perusers can read original essays about the fair, explore photo galleries and listen to radio broadcasts (see a video of Biblion’s slick user interface.) Future editions of Biblion will cover other collections, programs, and services at the New York Public Library.
This app is designed to open up hidden parts of the collections and the myriad storylines they hold and preserve…through a unique immersive experience. In this free iPad app you will hold documents, images, films, audio, and essays — directly from the collections in your own hands.
