Press Release: New Library Catalogue at Shakespeare's Globe

Shakespeare's Globe is introducing a new catalogue for its library that 
will facilitate easier use of its collection. The library supports Globe 
Education's research activity, while also serving outside scholars and 
researchers and actors during the Globe's Theatre season.

The catalogue, Ariel, an Access-It web-based library system, will allow 
the library to manage collections of books, serials, electronic 
documents, and multimedia.

The library at Shakespeare's Globe contain texts and criticism of plays 
by Shakespeare and his contemporaries, a selection of 16th and 17th 
century poetry, a range of periodicals (including Shakespeare Survey, 
Shakespeare Bulletin, and Shakespeare Quarterly), and works on the 
Shakespearean sources; theatre history, cultural and social history of 
early modern England, and Shakespeare's Globe (reconstruction, early 
seasons etc).

The Shakespeare's Globe Library and Archives also hold research 
materials relating to all Shakespeare and non-Shakespeare productions 
and adaptations performed on the Globe stage, adaptations of plays by 
Shakespeare performed on the Globe stage, as well as materials relating 
to plays by Shakespeare contemporaries performed as part of Globe 
Education's Read Not Dead staged readings and new plays written for and 
performed at the Globe.

Registration is not required for the catalogue which can be found at 
http://library.shakespearesglobe.com:2000. Appointments to access the 
library, which is open Tuesdays to Thursdays 10am to 5pm, can be made by
