What can I find on Miranda?

The Miranda prototype contains about 1,800 records, which contain bibliographic information about physical and digital objects at the Folger. Each of these records has its own page, and some of them contain digital media you can view, read, hear, watch, or download. If you don’t see any digital media attached to a particular record, it is not yet available on Miranda. We will continue to add records and digital media to the platform as we prepare for Miranda's beta launch in 2018.

If you have any feedback for us, send an email to dap@folger.edu. We'll take your views into consideration as we work on future versions of Miranda.

Here are some of the things you can find on Miranda now:

View actress Ellen Terry as Juliet; a letter from Julia Marlowe to Henry Folger; Edwin Booth’s hair bracelet; colorful plants ; and “Aer”.

Watch Taming of the Shrew (1908) and videos offering insight into Hamlet’s soliloquies, using The Merchant of Venice in the classroom, and translating Shakespeare.
