Hi all! I just want to clarify, since you've found this, that this is going to remain a placeholder account until Google straightens out some of the details about multiple managers and transferring ownership of pages. So thanks for your interest, and I hope we'll be back soon with some real content!

Curious about the resonances of Guy Fawkes today?

I really love this post by one of our catalogers--it's a great insight into the challenges of cataloging collections so that they will facilitate different types of access and research.

early modern scholarship at the Folger and beyond
Introduction
The Folger Shakespeare Library is a world-class center for scholarship, learning, culture, and the arts. Home to the world’s largest Shakespeare collection and a primary repository for research material from the early modern period (1500–1750), the Folger Shakespeare Library is an internationally recognized research library offering advanced scholarly programs in the humanities. Collections include rare printed books, manuscripts, works of art, audiovisual materials, and modern scholarship. These materials extend beyond Shakespeare to include a wide range of disciplines–history and politics, theology and exploration, law and the arts–from the early modern period (1500–1750). New acquisitions of rare and modern materials are made regularly through purchases and the generosity of donors. A gift to the American people from industrialist Henry Clay Folger, the Folger Shakespeare Library–located one block east of the U.S. Capitol–opened in 1932.

The Collation: a gathering of scholarship from the Folger Shakespeare Library is a blog with twice-weekly posts about research being done at the Library featuring staff, fellows, and program participants. Visit us at http://collation.folger.edu or follow us in your RSS feeder!
