Collection


Instructions for Accessing Folger Library Digital Image Collection 
(Shakespeare Quartos Archive)

In the previous SHAKSPER digest, I provided information about the Folger 
Shakespeare Library's Digital Image Collection and in particular its 
collaboration with Oxford University and others to establish the 
Shakespeare Quartos Archive. In this digest, I will provide instructions 
for accessing those collections.

To begin, open browser at Folger Shakespeare Library: http://www.folger.edu/

Select Use the Collection (Slightly to the left of the Middle of the 
homepage:

Select Digital Image Collection from list of choices to the left (a sort 
of table of contents for Use the Collection).

The first choice below Digital Image Collection Access the Digital 
Collection is a section explaining Accessing Digital Images where you 
learn that "There are two ways to explore our Digital Image Collection." 
If you plan extensively to explore the resources, I would suggest that 
you download the Luna Insight program. If you will only be taking a 
short visit or two, then follow the directions for accessing the 
resources with your web browser.


To Use Your Web Browser

You may use your web browser (be sure to turn off popup blockers), which 
provides access to the collection through an interface called Browser 
Insight(r) that is convenient, but limited in features.

Copy and paste this Browser Insight URL into your favorite web browser, 
or just click on the link:

http://titania.folger.edu:8081/BrowserInsight/BrowserInsight?un=guest&pw=guest

Remember to turn off pop-up blockers!


To Explore Collection with Luna Insight (*The second best thing to be at 
the library and getting all of the necessary permissions to handle these 
rare materials -- not to trying to find a parking space on Capitol Hill.)

Instructions for Installing Luna Insight(r) Software on Your PC or Mac:
<http://www.folger.edu/template.cfm?cid=3079>

1. Luna Go to Luna Imaging <http://www.luna-imaging.com/>

10. Choose the Advanced option when it appears

11. Watch for the message Specify the URL / address for your 
organization's Insight User Manager

12. Change the User Manager Address to titania.folger.edu

13. When prompted, select No, you are not upgrading (even if you are)

14. In Windows, a shortcut should install in a Luna Imaging folder in 
the All Programs menu in your Start menu. Otherwise you can go to 
C:\Program Files\LunaImaging\Insight 6.0 and find the application file 
Insight 6.0.

application file is Insight 6.0

How to Access Digitized Pre-1640 Shakespeare Quartos from the Folger 
Collection


I assume that not every subscriber to this list is as obsessive as I am, 
but since I learned of the availability of these resources, I have been 
so occupied with exploring the collection that it has been difficult to 
complete these digests for distribution. I began with reacquainting 
myself with the Aspley Imprint of SHAKE-SPEARES SONNETS 1609 (STC 22353) 
that I examined in great detail years ago when I was preparing my 
co-edited edition with Ian Lancashire.

This experience has reaffirmed an idea that I have been playing with for 
a few days. See next digest for details.
