I'm replying to Michelle via the Listserv as other folks out there may be
interested in the response.  The Folger is even now in process of bringing up
our new online catalogue.  Eventually, this will be accessible via telnet, but
not for some months yet.  Even so, it will NOT include the majority of rare
books or any of the manuscripts in the collections, so researchers will still
have to consult the multi-volume Folger Catalogs of Printed Books and
Manuscripts.  In England these are available at a number of institutions
including: Birmingham Public Library, U of Birmingham, Trinity College and
Univer. Library at Cambridge, U of Durham, U of Hall, U of Leeds, U of
Liverpool, British Library, U of London, U of Manchester, Bodleian Library,
Blackwells at Oxford, U of Southampton, and Shakesp. Centre Library in
Stratford.  Not all places have both book and MS catalogs, but many do.

Hope this is useful information for all.

Folger Reference Librarian

Again, I'm replying to Pat Dunlay and Alan Young via the List as the replies
may interest other folks.  Pat asked about performances at the Folger or
elsewhere at MLA time.  First for Pat: Washington's highly professional
Shakespeare Theater is mounting a performance of Antony and Cleopatra.  The
times during MLA are as follows: Dec. 26 at 2 and 8; Dec.27 at 8; Dec.28 at 2
and 8; Dec.29 at 2 and 7:30; Dec.30 no show; Dec.31 at 7:30; Jan.1 at 7:30 (Box
office 202-393-2700).

In addition, there are a number of Shakespeare films playing here now, and
given the popularity of R&J, I expect it will be on then as well.  Hamlet opens
just before Christmas.

There are no performances at the Folger during that time, but for anyone
staying on in DC, the Folger Consort will be staging Hildegard von Bingen's
Ordo Virtutum at the National Cathedral on January 10 and 11.

Now for Alan's query.  There is a very fine catalogue of the Hollar exhibit,
available from the Folger Museum Shop for $26.95.  Phone: 202-675-0308.

Hope to see many of you at the "Tea."
Georgianna
