The creation of a digital archive of pre-1641 quarto editions of Shakespeare's plays with a prototype for an interactive interface, toolset, and enhanced functionality.

The University of Oxford and the Folger Shakespeare Library propose a transatlantic digital collaboration to create the Shakespeare Quartos Archive. The one-year project will reunite all seventy-five pre-1641 quarto editions of Shakespeare's plays into a single online collection with contributions from the world's leading repositories in the United Kingdom and United States. The initiative includes development of a user interface and sophisticated digital toolset with research and teaching functions. The prototype for full functionality will embrace all thirty-two pre-1641 copies of "Hamlet" held by the participating libraries and result in a technologically advanced interface facilitating close examination and comparison of these internationally significant treasures. The Shakespeare Quartos Archive will be freely available to scholars, teachers, students, and actors across the globe.
