What is Miranda?

Miranda helps you discover something new to see, hear, and learn from the world of the Folger Shakespeare Library.

Whether you’re doing research or searching for something fun, Miranda can help you find what you’re looking for.

Miranda holds images, videos, podcasts, and datasets for you to explore. Miranda also holds library records for the thousands of objects in the Folger’s collections that are not yet digitized, giving you rich and detailed information about what you can’t see online.

Miranda helps you save and organize what you find on My Shelf. And with the items in our collection, Miranda shares insights on Shakespeare, the world he lived in, and the legacy he left behind.
