Lesson of V. I. Batalkina. Library in the Museum

A student, a master, a graduate student or an ordinary citizen that wants to get to know the world, undertake a scientific study or find for himself something new and interesting, turns to the book. A book it is a treasury of culture and availability of a book in a library gives an opportunity to study history with the purpose of the mutual understanding of cultures. Priceless are the books in the library of the German national museum. There it is possible to become acquainted with historical, scientific, methodical editions of different historical periods and modern theories that give an answer to a multitude of questions related to practical work of modern times. Every time I visit the library of the German national museum in the city of Nuremberg I enjoy the atmosphere of a reading-room of the library, hospitality of staff and easy access to the books. There are about 600000 books in the library. When I take a 250 year old book in my hands I feel that I become a participant of events portrayed in the book and I visualize the images of old time. For example, in the book of the author Stettner Daniel, 1764, the leveling of site for construction of the fortifications of 17-18 centuries is skillfully represented. The book is designed in the form of album in leather cover. Bright illustrations: colored pictures, sketches and drawings give an idea about architectural and designer landscape projects which remain actual also in our time. The book of the author Weigel Christoph, Regensburg: Weigel 1698. Titel: Katalog der Lipperheid. Kostumbibliothek is illustrated by numerous graphic pictures that represent the history of technology and handicrafts development in the 17th century. While studying the books of the past centuries we better understand historical events, and it gives us an opportunity to have a better understanding of science and technology development history. Visiting libraries and reading original publications have an influence on creative development of personality and expose its internal creative and scientific potential in art, music, history, science. I wish you discoveries and achievements. Visit libraries!
