Welcome to the Folger Institute’s compendium of electronic resources for the study and teaching of the early modern world. These resources range from online workbooks compiled collaboratively by college teacher participants in NEH summer institutes to selected links to the websites of other institutions, online journals, and scholarly societies. We hope you find the materials useful in your own teaching and research, and we would like to hear how you do use them.


Primary Sourcebooks for the college classroom

With a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in support of a summer institute on “Habits of Reading in Early Modern England,” the Institute began to post online sourcebooks on the topics of the NEH institutes as well as, occasionally, other large-scale programs. Each topic addresses a broad field of studies; each is approached from a variety of disciplinary perspectives; each is deeply informed by recourse to the primary sources of the Folger’s collections. Finally, each is its own comprehensive, multi-leveled website, featuring newly commissioned, high quality digital images from the Folger collection, brief interpretive essays written by the college faculty participants in those programs, and classroom exercises and questions for discussion. The full syllabi and bibliographies compiled by the influential directors and guest faculty are also included. Our most recent website, A Manuscript Miscellany , has been featured by Intute , a free online service sponsored by a consortium of UK universities and partners that provides access to the very best Web resources for education and research, selected and evaluated by a network of subject specialists.      


With the permission of individual seminar directors, we post Bibliography and Syllabi   from Folger Institute programs.


Organized alphabetically by author or editor, Selected Publications  provides a growing list of volumes closely associated with Folger Institute programs. See also the list under Fellowships.


Since 1997, the Institute has posted electronic descriptions of its annual scholarly offerings; these are collected in the Archive of Past Institute Programs.


Libraries, Electronic Texts, and Indexes links to online resources that may prove useful, including digital facsimiles, full-texts of early imprints and manuscripts, and sophisticated finding aids at other research institutions. Still other resources aim to bring scholars together in virtual communities (Listservs and Journals, both electronic and print) or other, more traditional associations (Research Centers and Societies ).


We hope you find these resources helpful, and we invite users to submit suggestions, comments, and additions to institute@folger.edu.
