About the Project

Touchstone is a project funded by the British Library Co-operation and Partnership Programme (BLCPP) to identify and map significant UK Shakespeare collections.  The site is currently maintained by the Shakespeare Institute Library, University of Birmingham, in partnership with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, and Birmingham Central Library.

The aim of Touchstone is to facilitate and encourage research in Shakespeare studies that will benefit both the academic and the wider community.  This is being realised through the development of three inter-related strands:
