Exhibit of New York Public Library Artifacts

From Wired magazine:

"The curators at the New York Public Library have spent a century amassing the library’s extensive research collection — everything from 4,300-year-old Sumerian cuneiforms to Malcolm X’s briefcase.
Now the library is putting a vast selection of that stash on display in Celebrating 100 Years. The exhibit opens Saturday at the NYPL’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, which is celebrating its 100th birthday."
