Join the Campaign: Digitising the Bodleian’s copy of Shakespeare’s First Folio

Get involved with the Bodleian Library’s Sprint for Shakespeare Campaign, dedicated to generating the support and funds necessary for the Bodleian Library at the University of Oxford to safely digitise their copy of the 1623 Shakespeare First Folio.

While you can donate money, there are also free ways to get involved in the project: you can Join the Conversation to add your thoughts on Shakespeare, the importance of the resource, or just why you love the Bard.

Great Writers Inspire’s Dr. Emma Smith discusses the importance of both the folio and the Bodleian’s specific copy here.

Here’s your chance to get involved in the creation of a crucial Open Educational Resource. Check out the website!
