Friends, Romans, countrymen ... now you can log on to the Globe.
Shakespeare's Globe is launching an online catalogue for its library to make it easier to use.
Ariel is an "Access-It" web-based library system that will allow the library to manage collections of books as well as serials, electronic documents and multimedia. It contains texts and criticism of plays by Shakespeare and his contemporaries, a selection of 16th and 17th century poetry and periodicals including Shakespeare Survey, Shakespeare Bulletin and Shakespeare Quarterly. It also holds works on Shakespearean sources and theatre history, cultural and social history of early modern England and Shakespeare's Globe, including reconstruction and early seasons works.
The Shakespeare's Globe library and archives also hold research materials relating to all Shakespeare and non-Shakespeare productions and adaptations performed on the stage, adaptations of plays by Shakespeare, as well as materials relating to plays by Shakespeare contemporaries as part of Globe Education's Read Not Dead staged readings and new plays written for and performed at the Globe.
The library supports Globe Education's research activity, and serves outside scholars and researchers and actors during the Globe's theatre season. Globe Education presents a programme of workshops, lectures, events and staged readings all year round, plus research seminars and research programmes.
