ERIC: The English Renaissance in Context
"A NEH project, ERIC was designed to provide scholars and students at a variety of levels with access to major texts of the English Renaissance in their original versions. ERIC grows out of both contemporary critical tendencies in the field of English Renaissance studies and a commitment to providing broad access to original source materials that would otherwise be out of reach for many."

The Howard Furness Shakespeare Library (University of Pennsylvania)
"A collection of primary and secondary sources, including both texts and images, that illuminate the theater, literature and history of Shakespeare, Shakespearean texts, theatrical performances, and criticism, Furness Library resources are now being selectively scanned and mounted here to make them available for class and research use."

Internet Shakespeare Editions
"The aim of the Internet Shakespeare Editions is to inspire a love of Shakespeare's works in a world-wide audience. To do so, we create and publish works for the student, scholar, actor, and general reader in a form native to the medium of the Internet: scholarly, fully annotated texts of Shakespeare's plays, multimedia explorations of the context of Shakespeare's life and works, and records of his plays in performance."

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
"Founded by the pioneering American actor and director Sam Wanamaker, Shakespeare's Globe is a unique international resource dedicated to the exploration of Shakespeare's work and the playhouse for which he wrote, through the connected means of performance and education. Together, the Globe Theatre Company, Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition and Globe Education seek to further the experience and international understanding of Shakespeare in performance."
