On its Facebook page, the New York Public Library posted a video about Biblion: The Boundless Library. Biblion is a free iPad app that serves as a "visual pathway" into the library's vast collections.

"Like a magazine, Biblion will come out as separate issues, with each issue or app covering parts of a different library collection, exhibition, program, or initiative," states the NYPL on its website ( The current version of the app focuses on the 1939-40 World's Fair.

As evidenced by the video, which I've posted below, the app looks pretty amazing. It's definitely an easy way to explore in-depth the NYPL's incredible collections. It almost makes me want to buy an iPad! * November 16, 2011
