Subject:        World Shakespeare Bibliography Online Updated

A new version (20041) of the World Shakespeare Bibliography Online
(http://www.worldshakesbib.org/) went live today. This version includes
92.375 records covering 1966 through very early 2004. This version
allows user to search only those records added in the current update
(use the 'Version' pull-down menu in the Advanced Search screen.)
SHAKSPERians might be interested in a comparison I've done of the
coverage of Shakespeare in the WSB Online vs. the MLA International
Bibliography (the first number is for the WSB, the second for the
MLAIB). The comparison is for 1966-early 2004 (as of 29 March 2004):

Articles 37,686/21,950
Books 16,504/2,177
Dissertations  2,648/1,553
Reviews 800,000+/Not covered
Productions 15,129/Not covered
Films 493/Not covered
Audio 778/Not covered
Software 111/Not covered

As always, I encourage everyone to send offprints/notices of
publications and productions so that we don't inadvertently overlook
things that should go into the WSB Online.
