Reason #45,689 why libraries are the coolest places in the world

“You have no idea what they have here. I’m not the college-educated guy. I’m the street-educated guy. This has been my college.”

Mr.
Sabol, 49, is one of more than 63,000 entrepreneurs, investors and
small-business owners who have been trained at the business library to
search its thousands of print and electronic resources for real-life
business applications. The library is one of four specialized research
centers operated by the New York Public Library.

The $100
million library, planned with New York’s businessmen and women in mind,
opened a decade ago with a research collection of 1.2 million books,
millions of patent documents and more than 110,000 periodicals. Since
then, it has evolved into a dynamic, industry-focused learning center
that takes advantage of modern technology with databases and classes
tailored to New York industry sectors, said Kristin McDonaugh, the
director.
