These are the readings that have been requested by our host, Mr. Jim Kuhn, Head of Collection Information Services.

encoding.html. Tension is revealed between wanting to encode physical and textual attributes. How did we do? Maybe we satisfied nobody!

- Collection Development Policy: http://www.folger.edu/Content/
About-Us/The-Collection/ Collection-Development-Policy/ and our Archive-It site at http://www.archive-it.org/ organizations/576.
The exercise for this week is to familiarize yourselves with the Shakespeare Quartos Archive (SQA) and the Folger Digital Texts (FDT) sites and to arrive prepared to dazzle Mr. Kuhn with your sharp questions and insights. An optional exercise may consist in our retiring to the nearby Hawk N Dove after our visit to the Folger.
