Summary Expands the British Library's "Shakespeare in Quarto" website into an online collection reproducing at least one copy of every edition of William Shakespeare's plays printed in quarto before the theatres closed in 1642. Joined to this resource is a prototype of an interactive interface and toolset aimed at facilitating scholarly research, performance studies, and new pedagogical applications derived from detailed examination and comparison of the quartos. The interface prototype is at present fully functional for one play, Hamlet. Tools and functions include the ability to: overlay text images; compare images side-by-side; search full-text; mark and tag text images with user annotations; create public or private sets of annotations; create exhibits or character cue line lists; and download and print text and images -- "About" page of web site, viewed Feb. 19, 2010.
