The room is spectacular and very functional. There are computer stations off to the right beyond the photo that are networked to the two printers in the background of this photo. The smaller printer is B&W while the larger one is color. There is a small fee for printing. This room was renovated in 2005.
Don’t forget to look up!
"The renovation of the Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division brings a number of sophisticated electronic databases and state-of-the-art mapping technologies to New York Public Library users. Now users can combine traditional research of sheet maps and atlases with new digital mapping technologies. From property owners and attorneys analyzing building footprints and census tract boundaries, novelists looking for accurate details of historical locations, to architects and developers engaged in civic planning, diverse users will benefit from these enhanced technological capabilities."
