This CD-ROM contains over 50,000 separate records of material published or produced in the years 1980–1996. The scope is international, with coverage extending to seventy-five languages and representing every country in North America, South America, and Europe, and most countries in Asia, Africa, and Australasia.

Customers who purchased the 1998 disk as part of the registration scheme will be entitled to this update for free. Winner of the Library Association Besberman Medal for Outstanding Bibliography, 1996


‘Probably the most useful and certainly the most comprehensive tool for Shakespearean study … this already powerful research tool is even better in its CD-ROM version. It is essential for all undergraduate, graduate and research libraries, as well as general reference collections.’ Choice

‘Powerful retrieval facilities to access large amounts of text … it allows users to create their own hypertext links between entries.’ Multimedia Bookseller

‘The range of languages represented on the CD-ROM demonstrates … the breadth of international study devoted to Shakespeare.’ Computers and Texts

‘The World Shakespeare Bibliography on CD-ROM represents a significant technological advance in bibliographical aspects of scholarship on Shakespeare, and it will undoubtedly be adopted as one of the most important basic research tools in the field.’ Studies in English Literature
