Comment: Re: SHK 4.0033 Folger Library Awarded $2.5 Million Grant
The news about Project Access (expanding the offerings at the Folger) is
very interesting. Are there any plans to use some of that funding to
establish ways to "reach out" electronically in some way?

[Editor's Note: The posting mentioned above consists entirely of the
Press Release I obtained from the Folger Library last Friday. During my
previous visit to the Folger, the week before, I learned that the Library
is in the process of being "wired" to give staff members Internet access
through Amherst College. Some of the Folger Library's staff, have
expressed an interest in joining our electronic discussion group, but I have
no knowledge of any plans at the moment for further electronic "outreach."
I encourage any SHAKSPERean with additional knowledge to share it with
us. In the meantime, I believe that it would be highly appropriate
for members of our electronic conference who are so inclined to write to
the Director, Dr. Werner Gundersheimer, The Folger Shakespeare Library, 201
East Capitol Street, S.E., Washington, D.C. 20003-1094, expressing your
interest in ways that the Folger Library could "reach out" electronically
to the academic community. hmc]
