Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.
This collection contains items that share the history of the Capital District Library Council.
This collection highlights images and documents reflecting the College's move from its downtown Troy location to a permanent multi-building campus on the outskirts of the city to meet the demands of a growing student body and faculty, the need for varied instructional resources, and continued growth as an established institution of higher education.
A choice painting collection that dates to the early 19th century.

From 2009 to early 2010 it was on display in a successful rotating exhibit “Historic Paintings Unwrapped” featuring different works each month.
A portrait collection of New York judges and court staff spanning over a century.
