World Shakespeare Bibliography Online - Folger Shakespeare Library

If you would like the library to request a trial for the World Shakespeare Bibliography Online, please let me know. The database is produced by Shakespeare Quarterly and published for the Folger Shakespeare Library. The trial would run for 45 days.

Description - taken from the database web site:
The World Shakespeare Bibliography Online is a searchable electronic database consisting of the most comprehensive record of Shakespeare-related scholarship and theatrical productions published or produced worldwide between 1960 and 2010. Containing over 123,496 annotated entries, this collected information is an essential tool for anyone engaged in research on Shakespeare or early modern England. In 2001, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) awarded the WSB Online the Besterman/McColvin medal for outstanding electronic reference work.
