NYPL: Biblion

Managing Editor | 2011
Biblion: The Boundless Library is an immersive experience through the New York Public Library’s collections. The first edition of this free iPad app takes readers on a gently curated and ultimately personalized tour of the New York 1939-1940 World’s Fair collection from the Library’s Manuscripts and Archives Division.

As the managing editor of the first edition of Biblion, I created the narrative structure; wrote about 60%-70% of the app’s content; surveyed and managed content; and solicited and managed contributions from 22 writers. Explore online here or:
