The New York Public Library comprises a set of scholarly research
collections and a network of community libraries, and its
intellectual and cultural range is both global and local, while
singularly attuned to New York City. The research collections of
over forty-three million items resemble the holdings of the great
national and university libraries and the community circulating
libraries with seven million items resemble classic American
municipal libraries. The Barbara Goldsmith Preservation Division
supports the mission of the Research Libraries by preserving both
the artifacts and intellectual content of NYPL's rich and vast
collections. A wide variety of preservation activities are performed
in four units: Binding and Shelf Preparation, Collections Care,
Conservation Treatment, and Reformatting.
