As the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death is marked this year, UW–Madison has spearheaded the Shakespeare in Wisconsin 2016 initiative.
Wisconsin’s libraries, archives and museums are joining their peers around the country in providing free online access to their digital collections through the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).
The award will ensure that listeners today and in the future will be able to hear rare fragments of Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest’s musical past.
UW-Madison was selected as the Wisconsin host site for “First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare,” a national traveling exhibition.
As the semester draws to a close, students study inside Wendt Library at the University of Wisconsin–Madison on Dec. 6, 2015.
