Subject:     World Shakespeare Bibliography Online

The World Shakespeare Bibliography Online 
( has just been updated. Version 20064 
includes more than 110,000 entries from 1962-2006.

The Modern Language Association has announced that the World Shakespeare 
Bibliography Online has received Honorable Mention for the MLA Prize for 
a Distinguished Bibliography for his work on World Shakespeare 
Bibliography Online.
The Selection Committee's citation reads:
"The World Shakespeare Bibliography Online (1963-2006) meets the 
challenge of equipping scholars with a comprehensive record of articles, 
books, dissertations, reviews, productions, films, audio materials, and 
software relating to the English writer, whose works continue to be 
performed, filmed, and written about on a global stage. Begun in 1950 
and now containing over 106,000 annotated entries, the WSB represents 
publications in 118 languages. The WSBO brilliantly exploits the unique 
advantages offered by the electronic medium, thereby appealing to 
humanities computing scholars. It is the premier searchable electronic 
database on Shakespeare-related materials available to scholars 
world-wide. Long an essential tool for anyone engaged in research on 
Shakespeare and the early modern world, it is now also honored as an 
outstanding electronic reference work."
