  • Cutter Girl! Selected Online Resources for the Well-Endowed Librarian/Archivist

    You are desperate to know what year William Shakespeare wrote Hamlet. Well, if you're me, you can look at the Globe Theatre ruler on your desk and see that it was written in 1600. However, if have not spent quality time (and way too much money) in the Globe's giftshop like I have (and aren't willing to trust the info on a ruler), you will need to refer to some resources to get your answer. This site is for online resources only, and are sites that I have found useful and updated regularly. I will check these links monthly for viability. I have listed several categories below.
