The 2009 Update for the New York State Research Library is now online and can be accessed here.
The Library has enjoyed a year of providing quality information services to New Yorkers and access to an extensive array of 21st century information resources. Highlights include the launch of new digital audio technology in the Research Library’s Talking Book and Braille Library, the creation of the New Netherland Research Center following a visit from the Crown Prince and Princess of the Netherlands, and the arrival of a new State Librarian, Bernard Margolis. All was accomplished under the shadow of an unprecedented deficit in the State budget and a declining economy. The State Research Library looks forward to continuing to serve New York’s people and government and the research community at large in 2010 through its resources and programs.
