Dear Robert O'Connor:
 
I'm sure Giorgianna Ziegler will respond directly to you, but, no,
the catalogues of the Folger are not as yet on-line in that way.
However, Georgianna and her staff are themselves wonderfully
helpful, and if she does reply she may be able to suggest ways
you can direct inquiries to the staff for help.  I've never done
this and don't know about it.
 
Best,
Milla Riggio

Just for the record--the Folger Library does not yet have an on-line
catalog, though both modern and rare books have been cataloged on-line
on RLIN (Research Library Network) for a number of years and may be
found there.  Other Folger books may be found on the ESTC database,
accessible on CDRom or through your friendly reference librarian who
has access to ESTC on an RLIN terminal.
 
For all you computer buffs, however, help is on the way.  A Folger
on-line catalog is very much in the planning stages; keep tuned, it
should be up and running in another couple of years or so!

I maintain HYTELNET, which gives access to all known telnet-accessible
libraries. Folger and SI are not yet listed. If they become available I
will inform the list.
